Expat Poetry | Hardknott pass

Expat Poetry | Hardknott pass


Hardknott pass

Audis, Minis, battered Fords,

snake toward me

as their male occupants

invariably succumb to my allure


gears grind

frustration bites

adrenlin flows full  throttle

and  expletives  hit  the  dust

as brash egos in steel stallions

stare failure in the eye


let them revel in their achievement

on soft summer days

as when winter comes   and I

glisten in my prime

none dare caress me
