She lives stylishly,
She's her own cypher, always
an unbroken code.
A riddle wrapped tight, veiled in
mysteries. Totally aloof.

B movies infest my head,
A childhood disorder, woken,
the way that such things go,
from its long viral dormancy
Which way, which way did the good guys go?
the baddies have taken over, they're running the saloon
The sheriff's been written out of the script,
he never came in on his cues, the town drunk
has a contract now to record an album of blues.
Nobody remembers the way the West was won
or why the proof of manhood burst
from the barrel of a sharp shooter's gun.

A child cast in bronze,
a fleeting expression set
The artist mastered the moment,
The real child went off to play.
