still bet on you.

fifteen years, dirt and dust
crystals and summoning circles
a bar fight or nine,

there is always a wager against us
eyes avoiding the truth
roulette bets, the pot grows higher
a revolver or three, always there

but we have the queen up our sleeve,

we still have the aces in our boot,

what is high noon to the occult,
what is a full moon to a cowboy;

they say love has no boundaries,
but I say we wrote our own

is that why they don’t come ’round anymore?
you think this old woman is going to
let wolves prowl my territory?

married for a reason,
no sheep live under our roof –

so it is written,
so it will be
