Teri Murray on Thomond Bridge

Teri Murray on Thomond Bridge
.
The Cowboy Of The Western World
.
He rides the range at Thomond Bridge
tracking trampled hooves
smeared by heavy plod of wellies
ragged tyre threads
.
Branded on rim of Stenson’s brim
random ropes of yahoos and sneers
bounce off a tarnished silver star
a pitchfork’s rusted spears
 .
Lassoed on saddle bags
a magpie’s hoard of littered dreams
huddled in an empty churn
where secrets cannot be seen
 .
Reflected in the river
beckoning west
towards Clare.
 .
– Teri Murray
