LOOK IN THE BUSHES

RIGHT BY THE ROADSIDE

WHERE THE TUMBLEWEEDS GROW–

THEY’LL HIDE MY SHINY WHITE SKULL,

MY SKELETON SITTING AT REST

A DECAYED TOME OF VERSE

BT THEN PAGES MISSING

FLUTTERING ACROSS PRAIRIES & DESERTS

OUT WHERE THE OWL SCRATCHES MICE

AND SIDEWINDERS MEAN BUSINESS–

THAT’S MY CONTRIBUTION TO BELLES LETTRES

A BODY DEPOSITED AS GRIM REMINDER

IN A PRACTICAL WORLD, LITTLE FRIENDS:

GET A JOB WITH PRACTICAL IMPORT–

MAKE KITH & KIN PROUD OF PAYCHECKS

AND PARADE BEFORE YOUR FELLOW CITIZENS

IN A LATE MODEL RANCH TRUCK

FORGED PROUDLY FROM AMERICAN METALS.

WHERE THE TUMBLEWEED ROAM
