Flat dusty horizons and broad treeless plains
Small town prince in a suburban life
Weekends in farm country kissing on cousins
Playing in mud with just us boys
Dirt under my nails and dreams in my head.
We were the “A Team” on the broad coastal plain.
Beaches and Boone’s Farm and Bluebonnet Balls
dances on Thursday or else nothing to do
Girlfriends and third base and playing at straight.
Austin discovery of me and new family
Boyfriends and sisters in a historied estate
Suppressed desires and main stage attractions.
Drama and loving, cotillions and all.
Later the Apple, then a City of Angels
But Texas shaped and made me and drew me back again.
