The cowboy stands beneath
a brick-orange moon. The top
of his oblong head is blue. The sheath
of his hips
is too.

In the dark brown night
your cowboy stands quite still.
His plain hands are crossed.
His wrists are embossed white.

In the background night is a house,
has a blue chimney top,
Yi Yi, the cowboy's eyes
are blue. The top of the sky
is too.
