Premium Member Faith in Economics
Faith in politics is not popular.
Other than optimistic civics teachers
and elected office holders,
faith feels troublesome
when mixed with social empowerment
over Others.

"Others" holds and hides broad diversity:
people of color
indentured servants
melting ice caps
rising sea levels
polluted air
worn out topsoil

to see if ranches were hiring,

Watching as he whittled 
On old branches from a tree.

The stately county courthouse was their usual meeting place,
a shaded downtown refuge, and a lovely public space.
They sat upon their benches under lofty pecan trees,
wood shavings on their ankles and some cedar twixt their knees.

Cowboys, Made of Awesome
Some modern folks, when they hear his name,
will roll their eyes and look ashamed,
thinking the cowboy is uncivilized,
with his hats, and guns, and round-up rides.
That somehow they are beyond the stuff,

The Old 5Y Ranch (muling drugs) part 2
It was just a "Front", that most were supposed to see
Not a stud on the place, just "mystery donkeys"

Docile duck rafts do dive-tricks, teasing whale-like buffaloes,
Salmon and tilapia tickle skaters and shrunk snails,
Tadpoles and fries from deadly algae and skaters escape...

Another day; days gone and go
We look forward with plentiful affirmative outlooks,
To the year’s feast!

For refined and fluent tenors,
For calm unperturbed blend of words and strings to born...
