BootHill: Who is This Man

overdose of chloroform
by doctor during child birth
suicide by taking arsenic

argument over blue and black
checked shirt
gunfight over a package

wells fargo agent
here lies lester moore four slugs
from a 44 no less no more

card game argument
buried in the only white shirt
found in tombstone

charcoal fumes in a closed room
suicide by strychinine
disputed mining claim

lynched by the bisbee mob
shot by john ringo over the
disparaging remark about a lady

he climbed the golden stairs
on the fumes of a pan of charcoal
he drank stagnant poisoned mine water

dutch annie brothel madam
china mary chinese brothel owner
bill carpenter baptist minister of tombstone

margarita stabbed by gold dollar
preacher with false identification
undertaker displays him in the parlor window who is this man

Sage, This poem reminds me of the old westerns I would watch with my dad. Fast paced with lot's of action and great images!! Love, ~Chessly

High-powered atmosphere!
Reviewed by Chip Bergeron 2/1/2011

Your western poetry always puts me right there in the middle of the action. Great, acessible images. I can feel the dust and smell the gunpowder.

As always great visions, Sage
Reviewed by Kenny Baez 2/1/2011
You are so good at capturing the telling details with no preamble or time wasted, Sage. Your Wild West narratives are very compelling and you find new angles to explore our fascination with the subject.

One of my favourite revisionist cowboy movies was McCabe and Mrs Miller, Warren Beatty and Julie Christie. The haunting music of Leonard Cohen complemented the mysterious bleak poetic atmosphere.

best wishes

So many ways to leave this earth, these are very colorful. Hope the display didn't last too long. Patrick
