wild horse

I've wanted to post this for days now, so here we go:

I'd like to call you my wild horse
and feed you silver sage

I'd like to paint my poems
with desert tongued clay
your back
and ride you savagely
as the sweet and southern wind
through a green and wild Kentucky

I'd like to make you my secret sun
blazing dark and red in the orchards
and I would steal away
to watch the way
your silver belly bends
and bows beneath me

I'd make you my wings
in the foothills of Montana
my lover in the oceans of the world

I'd make you my many calico children
and scatter you
the green memories of home

I'd be your hungry Valley
and sow your golden fields of wheat
in my womb

- Jewel
