Where you are Sam,
In all the books,
In every century,
On the road with Kerouac,
In the bars of Manhattan,
Where are kept silent Sam?
On the bleachers,
In all the words,
Angry and calmed,
As America,
As the life, with us for ever,
Thank you cowboy, your horse
Stopped on clouds.

I done goofed up, reading things a little too fast. It should've been obvious by your very last line. *smiles*

I'm not sure what Sam you're talking about here, yann, but it's a good poem.
