Dude Ranch Dues
By Megan Mealor

We corresponded cowpuncher chaquetas
dogging each other on savanna Steeldusts
indefinable amid furrowed bluebonnets
longhorns clashing limestone looms
the talismanic Texas half-light minting
live springs hutting hounded doves

Fitful cedar fences, uncoupled chuckwagons
harvested gangrenous hacienda hutches
forging beetled bygone byres
silhouettes of rough-stock rodeos
raddled Rio Grande steer-roping roots
harnessed hills humming with dragonheads

Mexican Hats waged war on white-tails
Prairie-Fire wrangled coast pipe corrals
Cowpen Daisies scandalized severed soil
Brown-Eyed Susans haunted railroad residue
Crow-Poison colonized fluted waysides
Garden Rockets seduced the limoncello sky
