Spring Mare

Sue Russell

green breath, heavy
enough to lay
a tender nudge
against my hand

plush lips flump
then wrinkle back
ivory grind
then drip
verdant ooze

other cheeks round
to concave curve
luxurious tail
obscures winking
fecund folds

secretions comingle
warmth welcomes
simple grassy pleasures
beneath the hoof
