Reducing Texas

When I left Texas
for active duty in California
I drove hard for an entire day
and
could not leave the state.

In a unit of our union
so vast and so diverse
I confess the violence
of such a poem
that seeks a word
appropriate and accurate to home.

If Texas
is strong
Reason
reduced to one word
would be
the capacity of her people
for
WORK.
