73. To the Stars Through Difficulty: Bill Hickok

Any Kansan knows
beneath the coyote’s calls
the clamoring of the crows
lie men of strength and daring.
Any Kansan knows
to abolish is the verb
that turned freedom into action
action into blood.
Bloody Kansas stood its ground
as any Jayhawk knows.

— Bill Hickok
