out of the f150
with crisp jeans light coat
to tilt with age and pride at
news and a prayer
slips one into the other
with glassy-eyed wonder

Immortal

Brothers fight each other for the victory
Hoping that they too go down in history
Pride cannot be bought and never sold
But immortality comes in shades of gold

Torch

Flickering flame, a torch is lit
tracing a line of fire through
the centuries. Carried proudly
the fire lives, in our hearts
as well as in our heroes.
