She ain't no city girl

not a home for miles

just cows

and horses

and a rooster

who likes to beat the

sun in the morning

with its crow

trees guard their posts

cactuses attempt

to intimidate anyone who comes near

porcupines and skunks

and deer

hide within their havens

she feels at home here

generation after generation

of ranchers and cow folk

she tries to suppress the thought

but it persists

let’s face it-

she ain’t no city girl
