Cup of Tea and For Sale Signs

i left a job once
north of
not Steele.

all day ‘Too Much To Lose’

played on the stereo
the arena
into the paddocks
horse ears
stalls and

through the finger tips of boarders
with weathered reins


i would switch the song
‘Old Double Diamond’

but the line

‘I Surely Have Enjoyed Your Cup Of Tea’

swirled down the hall
-sagebrush existence


when i drove the lane way one


took the CD and tossed it into the pond thinkn’
in a 1000 years

archaeologists would find it

play it

and wonder……..
