Homage to a Humument pt 1/3

They shook on that

this man had deepened,

but he was kitten.

They rode the bottomlands, passing cattle

grazed at ten in the morning

the sky

the arching sky.

Impressions

Striding

On a far hill.

Seventeen.

Eight.

A pair.

Riding his rifle, lucky surprise.

A horse was loud, aggressive

thrust forward he jerked.

Circle the horse man had brought down.
