Where am I? February 2019

By Susan Swan

My family is from this neck of the woods

No one’s ever had to show me

It’s a personal foul to pronounce with a “ree”

Ends with a “ruh” so says my pappy

The watering hole is ’bout 10 clicks S of Dixon

And a stone-throw off the old Route 66

Their barbecue brisket is mighty tasty

No tap, but a bottled cold one to tip

The flooding of ’17 was the devil

The path of the Piney spread wide

The bend of your arm called the _______

In ’18 it took a while to get inn-side
