Epilogue

~~~

~~~

The town sheriff

one black lonesome partner

tilted back in a chair

by the hanging tree

~

Sheriff Isom Dart

got so lonely there

he packed a few things on a burro

melted into the brush

~

When the train

chug-chugged around the bend

it blew it’s whistle but kept going

without even slowing down

~

Now

there’s nothing there

whatever town was there

has melted into the earth

~

A couple lizards

dart from bush to bush

a bird perches on a cactus

   whispering wind…

Going to the chapel…

~~~

The most beautiful

most ghoulish empress

on Earth

& I

so sly so wry

stood on the top

of a rock pinnacle so high

up there in the desert sky

her one thousand & one demonettes

so wily so crafty

could not answer why

~

Above the panoramic valley of death

swayed her & I

her hair a furious flag of glory

the hat on my head a miracle

that would not blow away

in the blow-torch wind that

scorched wounded & branded our souls

~

The view at our feet

shrank crucifixions & ghost towns

into nothing for nobody but ants

this wild escarpment of God stretched

around the planet & bumped

the back of the head as

we stood there

on the verge of slow dancing

but just holding hands instead

our eyes wide open to

truth

~

Clouds eye-balled by like

thick novels

their pages fluttering to the climatic end

in a matter of seconds

~

A passing eagle dropped a feather

into me’ lady’s other hand

the great bird snapped his wing

& was gone

~

She stuck her new eagle feather into my miracle hat

I became Chief Hopping Rabbit

but we still didn’t dance

~

We only stood there

quietly contemplating the journey before us

then I said to her

“Ready?”

~

She  squeezed my hand

we leaped into the void

ghosts

we floated upward…
