SIESTA

My black and white
horseback heroes
still shoot it out,

subdue evil,
herk and jerk to leave
the hitching rack—

the Westerns Channel
as I lay down
to take a nap,

now knowing how
each episode
always ends—

familiar voices
comfort me
to believe the West

is wild and safe
from all the mean
and greedy men

we’ve seen since—
a lullaby guaranteed
for sleep.
