josey wales
was hardened
from life on the
range.

deep within his weatherbeaten
eyes.
he longed for days
in which he mindlessly
ate sugar cubes
from the rotund
blue glass jars
at the candy man's shop.

he tastes crystals
as he falls to the ground
a rusty bullet making its
home right beneath his
breastbone. 
i like watching a spaghetti western now and then.

    OOoooo I like this!
    Re: Your comment really made me laugh. No, I do not have the ability to come up with complicated names, but I do name my characters in my stories after objects or words. I once wrote a piece where the protagonist was named Door, and a detective was named Mug.
