My Husband

My Husband is like warm weathered wood
A twisted cedar on the desert floor,
touching the oppressive sands of times.
Never growing towards the sun.

He showed me where a mountain lion stood
on a sandy San Rafael river shore.
Native spirits played along the willows as they whipped like chimes.
His rusty roan horse carries his gun.

My Husband smells like old leather gloves.
Holding me like the reins of his bridle we follow the trail.
Old trails to roofless cabins, long time forgotten.
He's sings a love song with out any tune and a smile.

Some old western ballad, lyrics of lost love.
He builds me a fence with rough pine rails.
Planting red roses, curtains of cotton.
His rough hands in mine we have shared life's trials.

Shot you out into the star scattered sky.

Forty-Four days and nights to make the boy a man.
God fought a demon, did it in thirty.

I plucked the string I did my part

I was betrayed by you and the snake around your heart.
You cast unholy, this quest we cannot play.

Childhood dies with all its toys left to fray
In red plastic bins and unwanted shoes.
