I am grateful for: “the Hang Fire before the Hang Five…”

“Mermaid” (mixed media) by K. J. Legry

*Cowboy Camp*

He is so enamored with a woman who can turn his faults into origami,
lend him a folding chair when at times the morale picnic has agreed to badminton birdies and all
he longs
to do
is sit with his face in his hands, peeking 
through his shakes;
makes a church steeple with two index fingers
so she might
return
with cold water for his frogs.
Everything is croaking,
she says
and he nods, troubled over 
which words to use, urgently 
listens for mating songs; 
tuning out the way 
she describes 
where the cremated remains will be scattered.

The Alekesam “Black Cowboy” (music audio) is being posted here for NO COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.

Alekesam “Black Cowboy” LYRICS:

i turn show ponies into wild horses
i’m a black cowboy riding a dolphin
when you swim with me you can breathe the sea
see the breeze, be…
profiling, scuba dive, you feel me, i feel you
get up on me, canopy
enjoy the beast, like you was climbing trees

where you at
i’m trying to find you
it’s a long way to go
circle back
i’m trying to define you
it’s the wrong way to know

looking good, at the skyline
windblown, all shown
satellites, postcards
spun around, but i get there
riding well, we pace ourselves
shake those shells
rock the bells
you come to me from the future
how you do them things you do

where you at
i’m trying to find you
it’s a long way to go
circle back
i’m trying to define you
it’s the wrong way to know

morning eyes hi tide
uga booga valentine
ju ju clean craze
new sensual
