The End Of The Trail

For Lightin’ Jake

Glen Rushton (edited)

Lightin’ Jake walked into the saloon
Like everyone, he had dust on his boots
The dust accumulated by life

Days of herding cattle
Days of farming before Melody died
Days of fending off challengers with pistols
Days of regret
Days of redemption
Days of acceptance
