Comanche Nocturne

Light oozes from a cadaverous bloodless moon

Naked limbs denuded and exposed casting a silhouette

In bas-relief carved against an indigo sky

Trimming the night in a splendid rich galloon

Moccasin clad wraiths slip past the sleeping vedette

Pernicious sibilant whispering like wind's sigh

Cold peeled pates will decorate their lances soon

Dogtrot hut was unaware interlopers slept

Screaming quickly silenced to a whimpering cry

Perhaps a fine horse to steal for the Numinun

They betrayed with slaughter at the smoking calumet

A sophistry of English words their intent belie

Can one man own the wind that blows across the dune?

We behold the mysteries they only covet

The dog trot's incandescence challenged the dawn sky

Illusory flight on toveros before noon

Red raiders from the edge of history have swept

And disappear into the endless llano nigh
