Notes:
It’s the end of the west. It’s the setting sun. It’s a trainwreck that’s only just begun. It’s a crowded bar. It’s the law of the land. It’s illicit ativities obscured by hot sand. It’s a war at sea. It’s the first shots fired. It’s victory in sight, though not the one desired. It’s a shift in the wind. It’s an outgoing tide. It’s the last man standing as the captain died. It’s a history lesson. It’s the name of the street. It’s a blank stare from the strangers we will never meet. It’s childhood freedom. It’s only in jest. It’s just getting started but it’s the end of the west.
