Lost World of Horse-Drawn

Lost World of Horse-Drawn

You see it in the eyes of mounted deer heads,
saloons of poetry's source materials....

Barmaids in thin cotton gym shorts,
muted TV screens in strip mall offices,
shooting galleries of non-season traveling carnivals.

In the heyday,  when things mattered,
stovepipe hats had arrows through them.
