Any Ghost Town West of Omaha
by Jeffrey Alfier
The Post Office was last to go
when the last whore refused her mail,
the town and her legend unmade.
When the shallow oilfield played out,
bankers and clerks gazed at the clock
fixed above the rail station arch.
Cholera, sandstone grave markers.
Love was wasted on bitterness,
the price paid for too long a wait.
