Dear Cowgirl…

Dear cowgirl,

You are made of sagebrush and fire
Big country and blue sky

You live for
The long trot and long days
Coming home and pulling off sun hardened underslungs and white dust filled Levi’s

Washing the grit from long hair while thinking
Of that damn black cow
You let get by you and the slinky colt

You breathe and make that cup of tea
Flip through the copies of
Western Horseman from the 90’s
And slide into the sheets your mother passed onto you

Fall asleep
Ready for 4 am
And the white dust
And long trot
And happy heart
That awaits you

Dear cowgirl
You are made of the desert
And history
Never forget the long trot
And white dust filled days
