Cowboy study in canary yellow


Yellow boots
Yellow pants
Yellow shirt
Yellow hat
Bolo tie

White mustache and goatee
a beautiful young woman
on each arm

Only in France
In Paris

Perhaps . . .

Poetry comes from so many places, sometimes arriving as a photo taken by my brother and sister-in-law on a trip to Paris where, one day, a dapper older gentleman appeared and they snapped  his photo and sent a copy to me. The poem appeared shortly after. Though the photo is long gone, I can still see this elderly gentleman and his consorts. Hence the poem.
