Fall for the Bluegrass

Updated: Oct 8, 2021

Many of you know I wrote a poem in early August about one of my favorite vacation destinations, and it just so happened that said poem was published in the New York Times.


So I figured I'd keep writing some. This one below is for my favorite time of year in my hometown and it's perfect for the weekend. Enjoy.



Fall for the Bluegrass - John "Fern" Cox


Summer heat

Please leave

Give me jeans

And long sleeves


Sunshine

55

Cool my soul

Pure vibes


Leaves fall

Autumn Sky

Happiness

Inside


Football

On all the time

Fantasy

New life


Kentucky

Where I reside

Fresh season

For the blue and white


Tailgate

Till the Moonlight

60K

Fans Inside


All scream

Fight Fight

Need a Dub

Goin out tonight


Old fashioned

Rocks glass

Raise a toast

To the Cats


Take it down

“I’ll do one more…”

*Last call at Belle’s*

“Wait, where’s the door?”

October

When it really peaks

Keeneland

Fall Meet


Green grass

Sycamore Trees

Stand in line

For the horseys


Suits and Ties

Benzes

Polarized

Lenses


Swagged out

Drip drip

College kids

Lookin’ for a tip


Thirsty girls

Pose for pics

For the gram

“How many likes you get?”


Champagne

When it hits your lips

Tastes sweeter

When you’re cashing in


Cash it in

Big bets

Another band?

No sweat


Old and young

Rich and poor

Lay it down

On the big horse


On the one

That you know

Gonna finish first

For the photo


Winner’s circle

With the team

Poppin’ bottles

That’s the dream


If it comes in

Like I want it to

Gonna blow it all

On some seafood


On some lobster tail

On filet mignon

Fine wines

Bourbon


Pappy

23

No rocks

Just neat


Ruby’s

Or Tony’s

After Pigskin

After Ponies


By now

You should know me

Lex-Town

The one and only
