Cowgirl by John Grey

you are downhome –
that’s your term actually –

by terms
high-spirited and
just plain high –

you take life
as it comes

as long as it’s
wearing blue jeans
bomber boots
and a ‘hotter than a pistol’ t shirt –

you like rodeo posters,
smile buttons,
line dancing
and bumper stickers
that say
“thank God I’m a country girl” –

you think truck drivers are cute
and fantasize about being
in a threesome with Keith Urban
and Brad Paisley –

of course
you’ve never been on a horse
and can’t tell a cow from a bull –

no problem –

authenticity
doesn’t know who
who it’s dealing with
