Brunswick Stew

by Lyle Estill

August 2014    


There’s no recipe
Just principles

It must have wild game
When out of squirrel
Use venison
Or left over rabbit

Simmer all day
Add any orphan
From the fridge

Last summer’s tomatoes
Last summer’s corn
From the freezer

Season to taste

 



  Lyle Estill has been publishing short stories, essays, newspaper columns, and non-fiction books for thirty three years. At age 52, as the last of his children are leaving home, he has just begun submitting poetry for publication. He lives in the woods of Chatham County, North Carolina, where wild game is frequently served at the family table. Photo by Tami Schwerin.
