On reversing love!

Updated on April 24, 2015

When a scathing look

of your dark eyes,

twitching scorn

of your fair nose,

quirky twinges

of your scarlet lips

dwarfed my handsome person

decided I

a hackney will not suffice;

a jockey I am

in race

with many valiant hearts

looking for a beauty

that surpasses the rest

to prove a winning horse

that draws jealous eyes,

poking noses

and murmuring mouths

chewing at worst;

what though!

Win I a jockey

only to race again!
