Red Shuttleworth

Roadside Attractions is the 2011 Spur Award winner for Best Western Poem. As Red Shuttleworth tumbleweeds across the West, he considers, in one poem, buffalo burger shacks, the wreckage of plowed ground, depopulation of the Great Plains, driving empty post-midnight crumbling two-lane roads at excessive speed, and the possibilities of true love.
