Forget the Cowboy

At the Feed & Seed’s big annual sale,
a tall, good-looking guy
walks past Mary with a horse-halter
slung over his shoulder,
and she follows him with her eyes,
gazing at that halter lonesome
for a horse, and realizing how much
older she’s gotten
since last year’s Bucket Sale.

Taylor Graham looks for poems in what the wind brings.
