AN ACCIDENTAL HORSE-SIGHTING

It takes a belief system      Berries before
ripening      Walking in the patch
where no one is allowed      Talking
about luck running out & my damned
teenaged tastes      O, what wondrous
ass      O, white light overhead while I talk
about oral sex with an agreeable stranger      Better
to speak frankly       My hypocritical nature
of taking haircuts for more than they are worth:
troublesome       I keep my eye on the blessing       Which is
warm & I cannot wait to get closer to you
No hotel will let us sleep         Our hands & mouths
are built to last        An accidental horse-sighting
is what they will call it        & we are off
