And So Began His Career as a Cowboy
First came the crisp white shirt with the pearl buttons.
Next were the boot cut jeans with the turquoise belt.
Then the tooled boots with the pointed toes.
"You could put one of those right up a snake’s ass," he said.
In the autumn of his 83rd year my dad rode his cow pony up to Heaven's gate.
God recognized that crisp white shirt.

Rainy Morning Blues
Our sweet street is melting in the rain.
The fog so thick that even if you were here
I could not see you.

When Christ Returns
"Nothing good? On the contrary," he said.
"These are my new disciples. These are my new carriers of the faith."
Fishers of men now wait on the corners.They search the eyes of each passerby.
Christ will show up in a fedora and ripped jeans.
Do not cross to the other side.
This rag tag group will lead you home. In those dirty pockets are the keys to Heaven.
Hold out your hands. Open your hearts.
