I sit in the dark in the back of the saloon...
What is between my table and the dusty
street is twenty feet that is
on the very edge of Hell...
The townspeople say they are sinners: the townspeople say they are evil...
The reality is that they are just Cowboys and
they are very much alive and much of the
rest of this town has already died... I talk to
the Lord and I Know what is Evil
and what is not,
which is why I hold services here and
not in a church....
These men make a decision
every time they put the whiskey to their
lips, every time they put the
tobacco to their mouths....
They make a decision between a
longer, duller life or the life
that they are choosing to live....
Yet I can see the desperation in
their eyes; I can see
that for every year that they age,
they remove themselves another year from their
childhood and their youthful dreams...
I can see that the only time
They will smell the
fragrance of a lady is
when they choose to pay for her...
I can see that they care not a
bit about Eternity, but only for today...
But, that is Just Alright
with me and the Lord


If everybody went to heaven...they'd run out of room...
Rev Buckman

Love went from forever to memories
In the time it took them to blink
Romance is just a wisp of smoke
It disappears when you stop to think

They fit together, damaged and broken.
Eyes wide open, dreams unspoken
Hearts left alone, get tired and weak
Turn hard and cold, no breath left to speak

Eyes were recognized, stumbling round in the dark
Unfamiliar explosions, dancing on sparks,
Nights they went crazy, the days they went sane,
Desire fed the river that drowned out the pain

Forever to memories in the blink of an eye,
Happily ever after falling out of the sky,
Do dreams become wishes and wishes become lies?
Surrender's alright, we see with more than our eyes.

The same spirits haunt them both at night
Whispering shadows, doubts and fears.
Yesterday's hopes are tomorrow's choices
Moments of passion, hours of tears.

Never stand too close to someone who says, "I only want what I deserve".

There are a few...a very few, however, about whom the best that I can say, is:

"I hope she gets what she deserves".

Saturday as I drove by, I saw a vaquero riding his horse...inside of an icehouse.

A few weeks ago I saw a clown...driving a car and talking on his mobile phone.

Many things I see are real but make no sense.
I can't see, touch, or hear pain.
I can only feel it...but it is real.

I went to Tennessee last week; my Grandmother had died.
I saw many relatives; some of them I'd not seen for fifeen or twenty years...or more.
We spent some wonderful time together; they have gotten very old. Very few of them had seen my two-year old daughter; she's beautiful; they say she looks like me when I was a child.
I have wonderful family; I am 57.

Today, I went to lunch with ladies I've known since Kindergarten. Two others I've know through church and highschool. It was a fun day catching up.

Murdered !! He was in the seedy part of town, someone said, and
what was he doing there, asked someone else. Bludgeoned with a
crowbar. Wallet and car stolen .. It was announced on the radio
that an unidentified body had been found, and if anyone knew ....

A man called and said that the dead man might be his friend. He was.
But, what was he doing there ?

Stimulating conversations
Rare revealing revelations
We had a love to share
Were we the perfect pair?

I had my schizophrenic views
She had her own bipolar moods
Time passed; and as our love doubled
The four of us made the perfect couple

Gunsmoke and Horses_ _t.

He was in the bar when the shooting started. Everyone asked what was going on; he didn’t have to.

He decided it was time to quit drinking. Funny; he was quitting for the same reason he started.

He said a prayer for the first time in 9 years and walked out the door and fell in step with his Father; walking towards four men that neither of them had ever seen before; they just kept coming. One after one after one, they joined each other in hell.

He hadn’t spoken to his Father….in 9 years. They looked at each other and nodded...then looked towards the men...some would enter eternity today.
A verse from Isaiah entered his head; the voice of God:
"I have sworn.
my mouth has uttered in all integrity
a word that will not be revoked:
Every knee will bow, every tongue will confess".
He thought that that confession would come too late for those men facing them.
“Let’s get to it, son”
“’K, Dad.” He didn’t choke on the word like he thought he would.
“I’ll go from left to right…you start with the ugly one”.

Without taking his eyes off the men in front of them, his Father said, "They're all ugly".
