/Edit…I just really felt like writing about Iowa this morning and did this quick sketch, as a side note, I can’t pronounce the word (no really, I can’t)
 
IOWA
 
I have never been there,
but I love Iowa

Iowa sounds like…
fields of dreams
textured with sun-kissed corn ears
pretty cheerleaders
their quarterback boyfriends in crew-cuts

Manicured lawns
warm apple pie with
fresh milk

Horseback cowgirls
with dirt under their fingernails
manicured hair

Mothers calling their sons
and men in,
from sun baked barns
for supper time

Dogs chasing cars
down the main avenue to
the sound of
Sunday church bells

…If anything,
…just for the way the name sounds
