|Ahhh, so now you are for rent? Good write Sage..I like the image of dirty women ohh dusty ..seriously I rode once and the horse knew it and walked right into the middle of a lake and stayed there..I love dthe 3rd stanza even though I joked but not sure I get the third one..why did they cry for a month? I could say that about my foster kids minus the lust of COURSE but I think I may have been the only one crying if they stay for that month..|

|I agree with Jerry Sage! You penned a gem with this one! We all have to ask that question once in awhile,otherwise we get stale from being in a rut...

|Great poem and question dear Sage! As is said, always honour the question. The answers often change, but not the question!!
I love this line too:
"...Caught in the stirrup,
from the kiss..." Gorgeous!
Love & Wildhorses Suzie :-D

|Damn, but you outdid yourself with the wordplay in this one, Sage. I mean, "written in horsehair ink," and "braided memories,/ free-reigning lust," never mind that the poem itself was just fucking good!!!|
