Transparent Words - Poetry

 

Mick Moss

Old West
(in response to Gary's 'Turkey Shoot')
 
A nice slice of old west life
where the newly arrived
haven't had time to create a culture
so cling to the old ways
they brought with them
the village gossip
the gender roles
small lives in a vast landscape
 
and all around them
those who assimilated faster
see them as easy pickings
fresh meat
skinned for the pot

 

Pg21
