henry fonda

watching two westerns tuned to

two channels

at midnight:

i:

henry fonda holds a noose:

o'er the man with the harmornica.

he gunneddown the railroadman,

he gunneddown the homesteaders,

he went by 'Frank' .

Leone wanted him in colored contacts.

(killers don't have blue eyes)

ii:

henry fonda holds his boy:

gunneddown.

outside the courthouse

/courtside the outhouse.

shirtsoaked in 's seventies hollywoodblood.
