When Cowgirls Git Over Their Blues

    Elizabeth Taylor, set of "Giant" by Frank Worth

Life’s a rodeo
life’s a desert
life’s a sand burr
under yer saddle
life’s a hot stinkin’ sun
burnin’ the back a yer stiff, red neck
life’s a hot, sweaty sonofabitch
full’a bullshit n’ Copenhagen.

Imma rope you up
real good 
cowboy.
And I ain’t talkin’ no
eight seconds.


55 for all the Toads in the Imaginary Garden and all the Magpies at The Mag.

  3. That second stanza was a hard, delicious pivot, much like a bucking bull! I don't think any cowboy will have a problem with your intentions. Not at all. ;)

    1. Thanks Bizza! Of course that second stanza could be read as taking control of life... just a possibility...

    Hey I just loved this and I see it satisfies another interesting prompt at Toads and 55.

  10. Cowboy/cowgirl blues only go so far. Their profession implies fun also!
    Nice writing, Mary. I loved the segue into the last five lines, no hesitation at all.
