My Woman, He Said

His eyes want to see her in her beauty
mark dappled all over her ravaged skin,
move down there the way opening for you
the closer the dark seems, the more you want,
the more she gets, the words going away
to let the night say when the day begins
and if it ends, the black bull of her dreams
rocks back on both hooves sinking under her
plunging her ten nails so deep in his heart
she can’t see why she’s my woman, he said.
