Poetry: El Pilon by Mary Teresa Toro

When is a modest pilon more than a useful kitchen tool? When it’s the only thing you can touch when your loved one is gone.

Mary Teresa toro is an aging Puerto Rican living in the woods of North Alabama with Frank, her husband of fifty-three years, Bitsie, a crazy mix of Weiner dog and mystery, and Ki-Ki-Ri-Ki, a random rooster who wandered onto the homestead.
