Three Billy Goats Gruff

I want to cross the bridge
to your meadow
I dress neatly and smooth
my hair down and my
hemline low

You turn and say I am too young
come back later
and I do when I am sparkling
with ripeness at
my centre

You turn and say I am too naive
you would hurt me
so I spend my bloom on
wastrels and wait
for turn three

This time you have unlocked the gate
beckon me to cross
We kiss at the bridge's apex and
I pull you past the rails make
you feel my loss
