Very cool! Congrats to him. Reading makes the writer. Just wondering, where can we see the poem?

Here it is!
By Matthew Ganeles
This field goes on in time,
wrapping around mountains, years, generations.
What are two men against a mountain,
to plow it,
lay it straight,
maintain fence line
He has worn this hat
for thirty years,
he claims as his own,
as he fights the horses
to keep them in line,
a seasonís worth of weeds,
even as he grips the reins
and guides the blade,
he canít help but notice
the shy autumn sun.
