The Cowboy Didn’t Believe

The cowboy didn’t believe
you should shoot a man with his own gun
But I did anyway

Shot him square between the eyes
And didn’t blink once

Only when we took turns reading
Way after the old, sold, cool breeze,
not like you needed the extension, car
Made way for old, sold, returned,
reread, always reread books that
burnt red hot through hands

There was a bomb
In one of the mines
And I remember being told
That it was detangled and disarmed
Because the detangler knew the friend
of a friend of the bomb man
And filled the biography holes
And that the cowboy disapproved of this
And so did I.

And that was our only sex
