HOW TO TRIUMPH LIKE A GIRL – ADA LIMON ,1976

I like the lady horses best ,
how they make it all look easy ,
like running 40 miles per hour
is as fun as taking a nap or grass .

I like their lady horse swagger ,
after winning ,ears up ,girls ,ears up !

But mainly ,let ‘s be honest , I like
that they ‘re ladies ,As if this big
dangerous animal is also a part of me ,
that some where inside the delicate
Skin of my body ,there pumps
an 8– pound female horse heart ,
gaint with power ,heavy with blood .

Don’t you want to believe it ?
Don’t you want to lift my shirt and see
the huge beating genius machine
that thanks ,no its knows ,
it’s going to come in first .
