cowgirls and cowards
raskolniikov

i am not afraid
 1
of leaving beautiful women
 2
beauty means nothing to me.
 3
so do not think
 4
that your sunset will hold me captive forever.
 5
i have already begun
 6
to sniff around your best friend.

Nice title.  As for the sentiment, sounds very raw, just like a cowboy might.  Of course, he's a d***, but it fits the poem.

I like the ambiguity of the "i" - male or female?
