Untitled New Poem

Jeffery James was a rodeo man,

he wore a black felt western hat

When he was leaving out of Amarillo,

he rested his head against a greyhound glass window,

using his hat as a pillow

As he started drifting to dream, he heard a scream

“Look ma, is that a real cowboy?”, that shout gave him a start

that about stopped his heart, it had come from a wild eyed boy

His mama said “child, you quiet down now”

but Jeff couldn’t help but smile,

he told the boy about all his adventures

They got to talking for a good long while

Amazing

Dusk falling down fast on the town of Big Spring

They’re freeing themselves of everything

That’s been holding them back from spreading

their wings,

They’re making a clean getaway

He’s got her heart,it makes him want to sing

& she’s got his & she’s wearing his ring

They’re both looking forward to

what their joint future will bring

Sure that it will be amazing

Wino

A young man sitting on a sidewalk bench,

talking to an old man who was drinking White Port wine,

The wino’s speech was kind of slurring, and it looked like he’d been crying,

He said:

“I wasn’t always like this, kid,

there were some years I really shined,

I’d give anything, if I could go back in time”

The young man took the bottle from him, took him by the hand

saying: “you can overcome this, you can be free again,

and if you’re willing to help yourself,  I’ll help you any way I can”

And The Rest Is History

Down in Lake Charles, Louisiana 

Lives Eddy & his sweet Susanna

He originally came from Alabama

& she was raised in Texarkana

They met on a Greyhound bus in 2003

He was originally headed for Georgia,

her to Tennessee

They sat down together, talked for what seemed like forever

They found they were birds of a feather, & the rest is history

Easy Mark

Jamie was walking home one night alone in the dark

he looked like an easy mark to some thug w/a blade

in Riverside park, but the thug soon found out 

he was gravely mistaken…

When Jamie fought back the thug couldn’t take him

When it was all over the thug walked away shaking

The thug life is one error he won’t be making again

since Jamie taught him a lesson
