But Memphis ain’t no ‘count

“But Memphis ain’t no ‘count,”
they’ll say. Maybe
what they don’t like
is this: Memphis
don’t go shufflin’ ’round
to the back door
hat in hand.
She just walks right up
to the front,
through the door,
and throws her hat
on the hallway tree,
where it spins a couple of times
before settling in.
