196–Jumping Fences

she rises up in me this woman
who rides a wild horse and
doesn’t sit still for anyone
for a couple of years she has
faked an illness said she was
too old and tired, but then this
morning her rain filled mouth began a prattering
as if such speaking would bring back
life which in fact it did sometime
between 8 and noon she was
seen riding a brand new stead
off jumping fences somewhere
