Free Verse II \

Wish for.

Wish for.

And what if you had actually gotten
what you wished for?

Then the Heavens
then the swelter of summer after all
bringing oiled insinuations
of skin
in bronze and amber

Wishes are horses
stamping impatient
in the morning air
snorting steamed mist

They move as one
perfectly accentuated
brush strokes
across the eye of God

You will harangue me
for my lack of initiative

for my disposal of possession

But I cannot come to ride beside you
the reins have slipped
the saddle
I am stuck in the earth
as silt gathers between my toes

I have no time love
time is rewinding
redefining itself
around the narrow
bones of your fingers.

And the horses
shiver in anticipation
for they have caught the scent
of prophecy
moving westwards

away towards them
