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…

~
