The 12th of September

This is the day the Lord hath made.
This is also the day Cash died
so while I find joy in the making I also
shoulder grief at the taking of one whose
voice was second only to my father’s
when I was a boy and growing.
And sometimes, when my father would
lose himself and sing of unbroken circles,
the two voices, they were one.

    I grew up on Johnny Cash, but didn’t know it until I was grown up…

    September 12 was the day my grandma died. She had a wonderful voice, too.
