"My gelding was sold to me as a gentlemen. He is. Whenever we go over a fence, he insists on ladies first."

Lady
Lady,
hindered by gender,
silenced by men,
trapped by society,
tied down with expectations,
ignored by those with a voice,
by candlelight,
scribble the words behind your red lips,
speak your mind in the form of a poem,
signed with a Man’s name.
