High Noon at Karnak

Tex’s shadow defines him—cut-out 
from the heat haze of Karnak’s quartz, 
a scintillating contrast to Egypt’s questing sun.
He slouches among the other black castings of 
denser composition mottled with grays, 
and Prussian blues, incongruent in a cowboy
hat. This six-gun scenario’s frame
disrupts the crafted precision of 
a chiseled arch.

Shit-kicker, lizard-skinned, boots point 
toward the desert’s dunes—death hides.
Needing no words to enjoy a taste of antiquity,
Tex shuffles sighs and takes a draw on
an American cigarette. With a flick of his fingers,
he deposits the butt alongside the others
in the white sand. His contribution
to posterity.
