abstract 4

By LeAnne Hunt

A lifetime of hearing girls can’t—
play baseball,
defend themselves,
say no,
and a marriage
of “make me a sandwich”
and “chicken again”
that I will leave
behind
as I ride out in the sunset
as cowgirl and you my horse.
I don’t ride
sidesaddle,
and for once I refuse
to see your “O” face.
