Westward, Ho!

 

 

 

There was I

and there was her

& then there was you

the Chinese

(or is it the Japanese-no matter)

picture word for trouble

is a man with a woman on either side

smart, weren’t they?

so it’s an old story,

one man-two woman or

one woman-two men

I dream

a horse...or Harley.

I ride off, forever, to the horizon.

west, naturally

I’m tough.

I cook simple meals over an open fire.

sleep under the stars

& I’ll never, ever, fall in love

again.
