Treasure Island

F W Finney


Cotswold Trails


She's riding English
(walk, trot, canter, gallop) .
I watch her hair whip her shoulders;
the look on her face- dentist's mouth,
sweat racing tears,
the dust rising near her knees
as she pulls on the reins-
fingernails carving, thighs trembling.
I was born to die her saddle.
