Crazy Horse-poem from the contemporaryAmericanWest




















Crazy Horse

forty
crazy
second time around
the whorey horsey lady
whose farm you signed on to salvage
seeing only another fifty grand a year
truck payments
extended cab
extend your debt
why didn't it work out?
marriage after two months of intimacy
eight whole days at that
my dirt is drying up
hormone replacement therapy
whose 401k is it after all
let it fall
scrambling around on the floor
for change
the only thing left
after the bankruptcy

  1. Me parece que os ancestrais estão ainda hoje desbravando as terras - ou esbravejando por que elas permaneçam intactas.

    Me parece que aí não há mais nem cowboys nem índios selvagens, mas americanos trabalhadores que se estrepam com o "way of life".

    Gostei de seu poema.

    Parabéns!
