Counting The Divots

The Groundsman –
Ensures the game is on
Wishes it wasn’t!

Tucumcari

Man, Tall in Black, leads horse
Long Gun; Longer shadow
Outlaws sought and Bounties
Paid in blood red Dollars
The bitter past revenged

Small town America; Reduced to small screen
Cinematic dusty streets,
Saloon and Outlaws, gone
Bounties Paid on delivery
Of every commodity but death

On grainy computer tarmac
Trucker drives 500 horses
Silver Dollar Freightliner
Seeking the railroad depot
Where the dark tale began…

The Wall

Set not in Stone
The wall breathes
Trembles with anticipation
Of cannonballs with leather skin
Prepares for mortal wound
A blow to wedding tackle
Protective hands and arms
Risk Referee’s wrath
As kick is struck
And reactions slow
Like a rabbit in the headlights
