Cave Creek Junction

Birdlike blooms quivering
     in the desert dusk,

as hordes of lizards crawl
    over pallid sands.

The women rack-up another set,
      joking, goofing off and waiting…

The cowboys,
     donning rhinestone studded shirts,
     and big hats – hitch the horses outside.

Another Friday night at
     the Horny Toad Bar and Grill…

With a wink and a nod to the real deal in
 Cave Creek AZ and using the 12 wordle-words in Sunday Whirl #20.

  1. Ha! I love your setting, and am so glad the words brought you bck to an old haunt. This piece still has me chuckling. It sounds like a great place to visit, if I ever hitch my pony in Cave Creek, it’ll be to that cactus leaning up against the Horny Toad. 🙂
