Next Passage

Because maybe

it’s biology 

that makes me think 

that you and me 

could really be 


but so the tale goes 

the one who’s supposed to

save the damsel 

and reap her love 

really just threw a metal hook 

to her windowsill 

provided an escape 

from the only world she knew 

but left 

before she could

get her feet on the ground — 

So she threw her leg over

his abandoned stallion 

in pursuit of a life

where she could 

write her own ending.
