The Slough

a chapbook by Winona Baker

In underpants mother made
from unbleached cotton flour sacks
I spent pre-school summers
playing by a prairie slough
. . .
Before going home
we ran naked into the slough
sloshed mud from ourselves
Anne finger-combed our hair
herded us to a home
that seemed happy then
