A Horseshoe Folklore – Stuart Barnes

Seventeen   

                    – underage –

when I galloped

through one of your wood door

-ways & into an apartment 

where a young man ate

my body as if

it were 

a pomegranate. 

Seventeen

years later he returned,

& with him, you  

                           – With

an offering from god:

a horseshoe

folklore.
