MODEL POEM by Charles Malone after George Ella LyonsI am from Laurentia, Ohio’s 13th, the Great Lakes, the maple-beech forests of the Cuyahoga River. Our crooked river flows through my basement during our late summer thunderstorms, it crosses three congressional districts while feeding our cornfields and soybeans. This summer we set it on fire for the fourteenth time. Still, silver sycamores grow tall on its banks deer slash through their fallen leaves Still, the river otters and eagles are returning like the kayakers and cyclists who learn each bend each flicker of sunset on water for the first time in a generation.
