the new western outlaw

i am the new western outlaw...


cosmically driven

to the sea

from the midwestern plain


i am a wordsmith

and bandit...

tumbleweed at fencepost

desert sky at sunset


i am ghost and echo

rattlesnake and gekko


wide open spaces

where lawmen fear to tread


coyote run all "tucky-tail"

moonlit drive all twist and turn


i am gun-shy

and maverick

canyon creek

and ocean


full of liquid courage

until that well runs dry
