A poem published in Thimble Literary Magazine, inspired by Georgia O’Keeffe’s painting “At the Rodeo, New Mexico,” 1919. This poem has a special place in my heart, because when writing it, I was reminded of my husband Lou George, who died many years ago, but who shortly after I met him invited me to a dirt track car race. I'd never been to one, but he'd done that kind of racing back in the day.
