Woo the Day

Anne Bachelier, artist
(with reflection by day)


Woo the day.
Courtesy to coat 
over a puddle morose, 
so she may cross
the strewn morass––

your jacket
pumiced by day's
dainty gait. 

In the morn
she was a foal.
Fresh as 
you were feisty
to break her in.

By the gloaming,
foaming at the mouth. 
Saddled, she likens to
a lady sashaying streets
in all conditions. 

The bit in your teeth,
you lag behind,

With a curtsy, she’ll bring the dew. 
Sometimes a token.
A horseshoe in the grass.
