Texas Cowboy Singing to Midnight

midnight's ugly position
on such a lighted day
a lover distress
his prominent behest

so very pretty
the song
even the twang
cowboy sang

he wanted to bear
the burden of her solitude
just because
by the black kitten
rare in your world

sign nostalgia stuck in the pasteur
"we treat you white"
no color entry
redress musical notes

cowboy bed been tainted
once before stood a black stallion
rode bareback forcing submission
reckon he'll ride again

mama, papa had no idea
their son born to roam
outside city limits
believed to be one hundred
genetic soil not spoiled
by unwanted meadow muffins

an unwelcome guest
but so very pretty
her poetry

so very lovely
just call cowboy lucky
those honeyed thighs
dreamed of licking her backside
fantasy entertain
without reins

awaken midnight
from her intoxicated sleep
voice punchy
prescription pills, booze

his recovery
unlike desire
shaking off truth with a facetious lie of laughter
steady sipping distilled spirits

cowboy crying on strings
for midnight to come someday
stay long enough to hear the guitar play
somewhere outside city limits

This stuff is loaded with
daring brilliance...


Hi Lepadah...
I was thinking of you last night…
Remembering one of your poems.
And now, I find this beauty…
a sweet Synchronicity-like happy happenstance!

Because this one is sublime, Lepadah…
(I know I say that about your poetry alot; but there it is there.)
…took me back to Texas, and you know…things. Things of the heart…

Exquisite work, Lepadah…


“I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.”


PS Your choice for the title is just right!
