Tom Noll's Story
Just like your vagrant tumbleweeds,
recollections of you drift
You were handsome
through my thoughts.
as your wind burned cowboys
You took me to high places where you
with sagebrush collar
worn against a craggy jaw.
revealed a ravaged past,
Your moody sands etched a deeper truth
and why you wear spines and armor plates
in my face. Still, in the shady embrace
You were a first kiss.
But, tomorrow is what I dream.
of your cottonwood canyons I was renewed.
And, in purple evenings with moon as bold as day.
you gave me fortunes in the stars.
'Till we meet again, Owyhee.
