What you will find here is an illuminated ode in free verse to my new favorite Bridle.
New favorite Bridle, you don’t look like anything I’ve known, but eventually I came to realize you were next on my list of bridles I’d like to own.
You see, my gallant steed can get testy, irascible even, about anything he doesn’t like.
The list of things he doesn’t like is long, but you, Bridle,
You are not on it!
He finds you comfortable, and he harbors sensitivity more exuberantly than the Princess of the Princess and the Pea. You, Bridle, are comfortable indeed!
O, the endless number of easily-adorned sparkly browbands piques my desire.
And so, Bridle, I leave here for you a testament to the athleticism you inspire:
My horse will don, ever constantly as we ride, your elegant and uncommon contours!
