INDIANA NAKED LATE

It was everything I’d ever wanted
bright flat clear pristine lay
The snow
the air so crisp clean
I knew my heart could heal
Break an Abandoners restraints
Slippery the road wasn’t
Silky smooth tender skin that day
sent my heart fearing
Touch Intoxicant
and so
I ran away
There’s a little girl
in every woman
A limitless boy
in every man
7 year old me
Showed up in the arms
of Virility that wanted to thrust
Years of womanly isolation
Desecrate

I’m lost now
-Deservedly-
Your Pride pushed you on
Every car door slam
reminds me
You lied about
going the distance I drove
(Or farther)
Too much to ask
a man be the strong one
Too much to hope for
Indiana
Naked
However late
I don’t know if I’ll ever take
a chance
a road so long
Without more evidence
Of substance
Beyond seductive Mirage
