The Journey Back

after Tolkien, Shelley, Nelson, Eastwood, Housman, Justice, Bishop

Cradling my drunken brother
In my broken arms I tracked

The last cloud on earth after
Deciding the last movie lacked

Cowboys. True, the river clips
Were something to behold.
(write it!)
Michael I love you and wine
Lied. We are just as cold.
