Cowboys look like Cooper, Wayne,
Marvin; or tall, thin Stewart. I seen
movies in the 50’s,
High Noon or Liberty Valance with
Not s’posed to look like the sculpture.
The horse is right,
but the cowboy rock sittin’ is short,
round-faced with a big ‘stash and
no gun, holdin’ reins
lest Ol’ Buck runs off spooked.
The wrangler wears chaps and a jacket.
Reality ain’t movies, both’s art though.
Drop your blinders and look both ways.
Mind the gaps for, “The history of mankind is carried on the back of a horse.”
