Another original fer ya

Cowboy Dreams

Gentle flicker hypnotises
Chest and chin attract
Like magnets

The door swings open
My new boots on the planks
Echo
Like gunshots down the silent street

Matchhead flares and sputters
Newborn flame flutters precariously
Until cupped by miniature hands

The little man reaches up to my cheroot
"What did you say your name was again?"

Tongue of heat wavering nervously
Attracted to the tobacco
Yet unsure
Until I draw it in

"I didn't" I reply
And turn away
Into light

White

Noise

And a sore neck in the moring

Very creative, however my favorite line was in the very beginning.... 'Chest and chin attract like magnets',
