A Regular Legend by Wanda Morrow Clevenger

he makes no secret
he likes a pony tail
knotted between
leathered knuckles

enjoys his grazing
and peppered chili
and cards with the boys
and garter belts and
Johnny Cash
in perpetual C

he is a John Wayne
silhouette searching
the sunset rise

a round about
Marshal Dillon
been known to
park his boots
where he pleases

a regular legend
in my own time
