The South Revives Again

Peggy Claire is half cowboy and half Southern Belle. She was born in New Mexico and raised in New Orleans. She has made her final home as far South and West as she could get (and still be in the United States) in San Diego. With the exception of a few years spent as a singer/songwriter, her penchant for writing poetry has been a private matter. Until now.

The South
smooth, cozy, dark
Where it all began

Lubricant of life
Death's perfect solvent

The South
in it's womb life begins
now it cruelly ends

The South
Dirty and fecund
Life revives again
