Cowboy Poem


They say a picture is worth—
a thousand words

This one says it all—
that & another inch more

Skip the usual flowery—
old fashioned Cowboy verse

Nostalgic, closeted, coy—
shy cowpokes from Texas

My Strong City stud—
barely surviving Viet Nam

Scorched by the vision—
ever-dying youth slaughtered

Over there in the goddamn—
fuckin rotten SE Asia jungles 

So when he got back—
nothing really surprised him

He wasn’t bashful about men—
what he wanted I gave him
