From where I stand
Beneath the sky’s southeastern sun and water-tower,
Inline with a few riddles of time
Before travel was banned, and
Outlaws roaming dirty-wild in masks and spurs
With gallant horses fierce in battle
Protecting monolithic foundations at the Temple of Jupiter
To praise Athena and the much older sun deity Shamash,
Lived a tribe, in the deserts of now Idaho.
Happy people, doing their best to survive.
