i’ve been ridden

i’ve been ridden
by men and women

possessed
by jockey mind

thinking only
of the finish line

 

it was bearable
when i believed

this body
was made for racing

but when
i woke

and felt
these holy limbs

strapped in
and pinned

a wild flame
behind my breast

burst
through honest sounds

and these eyes
became moist and wide

 

i removed my bridle
and opened the gates
