swinging a pickax
unearthing rusty zippers
separating gold from dross

black hole in red earth
putting spade to clay poker chips
stinging centipede folds

broken wings
MIA copper bracelet in search
of Pleiades angels

stale mail from a railroad postal agent
one page letter written in sepia-colored ink
Andromeda stamp dealer canceled

fool's gold of religious mythology
heavy metal plays its tune
this century's plow to prairie inspiration

fertile open land
Western erotica and Cole Porter
Don't Fence Me In...

oh, give me land, lots of land
under starry skies above, don't
fence me in...I want to ride the
ridge where the West commences,
gaze at the moon till I lose my senses,
can't look at bobbles and I can't stand
fences...Don't fence me in... [Cole Porter]

© Ms. Sage Sweetwater, firebrand lesbian novelist

I agree with Gene, no fences for you, nor breaking in the corral of 'normality'. Stay out in those open spaces.

As always, Sage, every line a gem. And incidentally,
I doubt that anyone could fence you in. Love, gene.

Picked a great song, funny because I always hated fences. Are fences to keep others from getting in or to keep is from getting out, always wondered about that. We have to be the only people in all of Texas that does not have a fence!

Be always safe,

I really like this, especially the line about fool's gold. I just happened to be wandering around and am glad I ran into you.

I believe the Sons of the pioneers sang that many years ago. Excellent job of writing.
