Pole dancer

The idea hung in the air for a while
then it started to live
colorless. green. pensive

In form it looked like Betty Page
and then it started to change
thoughtful.caring. pensive

It swept through the poets brain
crippling him as he stands
rational. biting. pensive

And left him a hollow man
wasted all the time

He pulled himself inside
the horse stables , smelling
the sweet scent of wood and tack, reaching
up slowly , feeling the horses back, rubbing
the area between the horses ears
called the pole
