she had a window
once of beauty
elusive carousel ring
they stopped to
watch her as she passed
men who kept her
why they never
prized her thoughts
why her opinions
never asked
they sought to own her
own her laugh
she sometimes lost
sometimes gave in
stayed on the horse
‘til night’s upswing
she looked around her
growing older
leaving beauty to the past
what grew in beauty
grew inside her
the window opened
learned to fly
a mirror is
a useless map
