About this item

Texas sprawls. No other state can claim such varied nationalities, geographies, and cultural richness—a largesse of natural resources, cityscapes, and landscapes of every ecosystem.
With a unique, raucous, and rich history, Texas also abounds with some of the most diverse contemporary poets, many of whom consider themselves “Southern,” and the eighth volume of The Southern Poetry Anthology reflects this variegation with poems both traditional and experimental, Texas-centered and universal.
SOW
Chomping her chocolates
of fresh road kills, she swaggers
through her slop, oblivious
of the piglets she crushed
during last night’s slumber,
squishing through the splits
of her thick, cloven hooves.
The last boar which tried
to straddle her fabulous girth
fractured both forelegs.
She dined on his carcass
for days, grunting in the shade.
--Larry Thomas
