America Early on Sunday Morning

Prisoners with
pickaxes in the
rodeo arena at
six a.m.
paying their
debt to
society &
playing rap
music full blast
on a boom box.


Women with
puffy legs
churning like
egg beaters
as they
walk their
leashed muzzled
dogs up
the hill.


launching into
Sunday morning,
getting ready
to pray.
