Man Who Loves Scenery

drove a truck
between Indy & Etown
was thrilled when
I tipped him off
to the wonders
of the Joe Prather

mountains, he calls these knobs
tells his son he
drives through the
mountains of Kentucky

I tend to sometimes be a brutal editor. Other times, I start with a germ & then write it to death.

I found a scrap of paper today that had this poem on it. With the exception of a single word I edited out, this is how it appears on the scrap.

The link above takes you to the poem that grew out of that scrap. TBH, I think I lost my way on the expanded version. I like the initial draft better.
