Wilderness Virgin (Buckskin Cavalier)

only a plank bunk, roughly made
reluctant jabot, not known for a dirty room
British accent less incongruous
in itself a considerable accomplishment

out of sight of the fort
white facings and gold lace
the way a man’s life could be changed

stomach for of course it can be either
tempting a straight line
no accident cools this dawn of yours
near safe keeping

presence every place I turn
the world drawn a little three times
for measure to eyes that change color like that

what matters, the grace of this well-lined

make my lifted heart the ground swell
