Fallen Star


Into the f*cking hot desert

He rode with Samuel Colt by his side

Through the canyons and prairie

Following the nasty winds of time.


Across the wild prairie he gazed

Pillar of fire raged before him

Tornado of destruction behind

He stopped at Snake Canyon rim.


Bible fell open, he began to read

“and I saw a star that had fallen

from heaven to earth,

and he was given the key

to the shaft of the bottomless pit.”


Wraithlike Darkness closed in fast

Shooting stars crossed night skies

Black holes sucked universal dust

Beside the fire he closed his eyes.


His demons snarled around him

The rider lay peaceful and still

.45 beside him on the ground

יהוה‎ watched from yonder hill.

Dayvid, this sounds like the intro of a novel. Seems like it could head off in many different directions... I know it left me wanting for more of the story. Could be that the fallen star came off from the front of his vest too, ya know? Great job.

Thanks Dick

You present quite a stark and vivid portrayal of the scene and the experience, Dayvid. Nicely done. I think you mean to write "sucked" in the third verse of the fourth stanza. I make "typos" often and I appreciate when others point them out so I can correct them. Thanks for sharing. Love and peace to you,

He might need more than a .45 to scare Jehovah off his hill; but it may very well work to keep the demons at bay for a bit. So yes, very creative this, really like the admixture of religious references and the wild, wild west. Sounds to me like a surreal trip back in time through the hot sands of the earth, opening portals and wormholes through the desert to arrive back at singularity, so to speak. Very cool, or hot, in this case. Tremendous.
