black iron

these Spanish spurs

black iron

on my black gringo boots

with black leather stays

chrome rings to flash

bought in Guadalajara

from the vaquero shop

closing down sale

that now create sparks

on low long curves

as we sweep bends

into the night

& she asks

is this why you bought them?

not getting yet

we are the last cowboys

riding steel ponies

heading into the dark

keeping traditions
