Of Horses and Men



What I like in a lover
is pretty much the same as what I want in a horse.

A nicker, and a lilt in the voice, affectionate.
Nuzzles, warm breath in my hair, never pushy, and manners.

Respect.

A quick grace that makes it easy to move together—
in fond synchronicity.

Best of all—
those soft, kind eyes that light up

                                   when they see me.
