He Sees the Love in Her Warm Smiling Face

Riding behind in a long red wagon, He sits, he smiles, plays with the air, he watches Her ponytail bobbing in rhythm as she pulls The red wagon up the road in the pines   They stop at a library, he toddles up Children’s books about bunnies and ducks He giggles and claps at the animal Pictures while struggling to understand her; He sees the love in her warm smiling face   She’s older now,…

Twilight Settled Around the Texas Spoon

I’ve got a tiger by the tail Its plain to see came a Buck Owens wail From the jukebox hidden near the bar In a West Texas dance hall far Away on a farm-to-market road Near a cotton bale load Hammer man tuned the piano, sunlight gave way to moon Barmaid dried the glasses, as twilight settled around the Texas Spoon A Post cowboy and a Hale Center mill man Rushed inside to find a…

The Harriers Set Off the Road

The harriers set off the road We followed with no regard for our thirst Alfalfa and cow pies in fields mowed The hounds all angling to be first We followed with no regard for our thirst Despite the seed tickling our throats The hounds all angling to be first The wet of water seemed remote Despite the seed tickling our throats We ran on in the heat The wet of water seemed remote To find…

A Hot Bullet Seared Through His Flesh

A hot bullet seared through his flesh Blood poured down marking his collar Bullets rained down from high thresh Surprising and stinging in death sprawler Blood poured down marking his collar He determined to die helping others Surprising and stinging in death sprawler He lay over the young girl in pothers He determined to die helping others Her eyes were as glass staring away He lay over the young girl in pothers He started to…

As It Should

A budded rose stem On thin branch in course sand It shrinks under sun A gingham maid pours water Rushing down onto the crown Glass beads dot petals Dripping into the puddle The green leaves shimmer Morning sun climbs high Drying the single red bud The flower stem wilts Petals droop down in distress Nightfall sunsets relief Gingham maid retrieves the pail Spray dances around brown root Desert sun turns hot Too much for English…
