Homage to the hackneyed phrase
I’ve ridden on you
so many times.
You have taken me
through thick semes of meaning,
through thin semi-permeable membranes
You have served me stoutly
when entities became hirsute
and howled edgar-allan-poetically
at the moon’s Mons Venus.
With wonderful panache
you have galloped me past
transports of joy,
trundling inevitably towards vales of tears.
On your back you carried me across
the swollen river
of opportune circumstances,
and with a desperate gathering of sinews
you have jumped over
the amazing splendour of love,
to land, stumbling, in hard reality.
Thank you, hackneyed phrase;
in my mind
you’ll always be
a frisky filly.
