  You could have a big dipper   

(gnocchi) by Will Arthur Spiller

reba mcentire lived in an apartment

on the other side of our kitchen wall

when i was a young faculty member

at southeastern

we’d sit and listen to her practice

as we shared an evening meal

i’m certain in return she heard us

making love

once she sang to the faculty

at an end of semester meeting

i knew she was going to be a winner

even then
