I look for the start
of my tangled ball of twine
then I put it down

Don't know why I woke
thinking of Anita Hill's
act of bravery

Ghosts from the long past
peer at me through the darkness
and call me by name

Pubbies on coke cans
and invitations to dine
make tonight restless

Machetes and knives
block those motherf'in creeps
and all their come-ons

In my dreams I run
I'm a creature of dark holes
well hidden from view

Don't mess with me, boy
I'll bite you in half, spit out
those parts I don't like

where was I? oh yes
Anita Hill spoke out and
Clarence is a judge

my perp didn't know
that what he was doing was
a violation

he was mentally
delayed thirteen and horny
and i was so young

he wasn't evil
just confused and unable
to tell right from wrong

i can forgive him
but what is there to forgive
he's a victim too

wired for struggle
but are we wired for love
sometimes I wonder

forgiveness is love
for life to the nth degree
there is nothing else

I'm buying a horse
I'm a bit scared riding him
He's new and he's tall

Where's my confidence?
Earthy smells, dust, leather, sweat
These things comfort me

Tennessee Walker
He is smooth and glides along
Mane and tail flowing

He's black, sweet, gentle
Fifteen years since I was thrown
I know how to ride

So give it a rest
It will be ok. Be calm
Easier said than done

I was on a horse.
He ran right into a bush.
Got me all scratched up.

I was on a horse
Ran under a low tree branch
Landed on my butt

Slammed my head down hard
Wasn't right for several weeks
Yes, I've still got teeth

I was on a horse
We were going to jump a ditch
She balled. I didn't

Flew into a bush
Was a blackberry, you see
I've still got the scars

Don't look, there's bruises
Every time I've leapt back on
I'm not scared, you see.

I was on a horse
Slipped in the mud, went down hard
Landed in the creek

And that time I cried
I broke three ribs in my back
Got back on, wet, cold

Limped back to the barn
It was raining cats and dogs
In bed for a week

My horse at the vet
Me laid up with "special" pills
I was never scared

Is that woman nuts?
You might ask yourself this one
I don't even know

Don't get me started
with talking about horses
Used to work with them.

Loved every moment
with those gorgeous large-eyed beasts
The scents soothed my soul.

I miss the moments
breathing the same air as them
and hugging their necks
