Scrambled, Not Fried

Ron.’s Almost Perfect In Red River

The newly-released August issue of Red River Review is up, and it contains my poem Step Right Up.  I’ve been waiting for them to tweak the linebreaks but, so far, no fix.  I’m sure they’ll get around to it, but I got a little weary of waiting and a little eager to start bragging, so I’m posting it here.  If you prefer, you can read it HERE  (with the un-tweaked breaks), where you’ll also find 70 other really fine poems.

Step Right Up

My Uncle Del, my father always said, could sell
an icecube to an Eskimo, a dozen pairs of shoes
to unwary legless vets; could sell, without a beat,
Beelzebub himself a heater and a book of matches
and insurance, too, just in case of fire.
____________________________My father
said my Uncle Del had paid his way through school
