"It's about words, and words are all I have…"

PONY

WILD PONY RACE

up on a horse at 4  long before a bike

no saddle  father’s cowboy boots gleaming

annie oakley-girl screaming her chuckwagon

heart out

 

fearless up there  horses like mountains   make

sure your hand is FLAT  for sugar cube after

Big Yellow Teeth graze her fingers   August sixteen

approaching  day they took Elvis  +cowboy father

 

girl left to wander at the pony races  her phone #

fades  drops things on the floor  forgets to lock the

door   but she will tell you with certainty: NEVER

WALK BEHIND YOUR HORSE!  

 

And please: DO NOT RESUSCITATE

Summer 2015  RIP cowboys+crooners
