Sassy Kathy

Met her
off the Green Line

Redondo Beach

She’d hitchhiked her
way to LA, she told me,
when she was eighteen

hasn’t really looked back
since

Thirty years
and counting now

Went back for
a visit recently, she told me,

passed over the
small copper pipe,

and said she’d
never want to move
back to Kentucky

’cause
the homegrown
there was awful.
