Cowboy

cowboy
your time is over
you are only
a distant memory
dust covers
the tracks you left
and your shadow
is only seen at sunset

cowboy
you rode these paths
created by
your horses hooves
and I found
your old battered hat
blown off your head
in your chase for relevance

cowboy
your dreams died
crossed over
by barbed wire fences
and as the west
became civilized
you are now
a dream antiquated
