Farmboys         Chris Anthony

Pittsburgh, PA, USA


Cornfields vacation here in June.

  Rowed columns with the occasional outcropping—

  where farmboys wrestle in shirtsleeves

  Until it’s too hot,

  and their underarms stained yellow-brown.


Bathing in the dirt,

  where golden skin is a medal—a testament

  to being six feet above

  and peach-fuzzed.


Chuffing like bucks in late spring—

  green husks stick to boot soles

  and farmboys pick each other like brambles

  before belts crack off like dinner bells.
