Poetry Inspired by Loretta Lynn by Aaron Wiegert

You’re Lookin’ at Country

No one knew the flame
that would burn
from the slight sparkle
of her flowing dress
and big hair

Across the lead-in 
she boomed
like Jack’s beanstalk
from a bed of coal

She gutshot you,
as you sit 
weighing heartbreak 
like it hid 
beneath the 
longneck’s label

She came from a time
when stars announced 
in rhinestone 
letters on a fretboard

Peanuts on the floor,
here comes a feeling
so big you can’t 
keep it to yourself
