"The Cow Boy"

wordslingers execute

with a quick silver

shot

straight through the

mind’s eye

 

stand back

watch the bull shit

fly

 

every fool with a pen

claiming “Manifest destiny”

heavy-handed pickaxes

attack the native tongue

 

ain’t no sheriff

in these parts

 

the grammar police

spend dusty days

tracking down outlaws

and stringing them up

 

poetry is the wild west

headed out into the unknown

under a thousand-mile sky

riding jet black nag

into the setting sun
