western swagger

this one (click here) is kind of a craigslist missed connection with theme-park character actor cosplay, all played out as a spaghetti western in a convention center somewhere. and of course, some other shit.

i originally had our protagonist wishing he could be a klingon next year.

“western swagger”

i lost none of my swagger when i left the western booth
spurs gently jingling as i cross the convention hall
i spot a girl in costume on a break from the barbary coast
she’s such a coquette she catches my eye and won’t let go
from there it’s all in slow motion and freeze frames on her eyes
the noise and commotion become silent as the night

pardon me miss, did you drop this glove on the ground?
i must be mistaken, i’ll just take it to the lost and found

she bats her eyes several times then suddenly breaks the lock
spins on her heels, moves away with a perfect walk
i’m left in the dust suffering from shock
a lifetime of love and lust poured into a twenty second shot

so many years of playin’ the cowboy i don’t know anymore
maybe next year i’ll be real, i’ll be something more

pardon me miss, did you drop this glove on the ground?
i must be mistaken, i’ll just take it to the lost and found
