Prairie Poetry   

Western Recipe


Take a tough pinto pony
complete with standard tack,
add a medium-sized cowboy
wearing faded levis, pointy-toed boots,
a chambray shirt, and a fine, battered Stetson.
Place that drover with his pretty blue-eyed girl
before a preacher
in a little white church out in the Sand Hills
and you have yourself the beginning of an empire.
