Day Fifteen - April PAD

Her face a mask
Impossible to read
ebony hair, dark as
the early morning gloom

Blood red coat
buttoned to her chin
black leather boots
that kiss her knees

Velvet riding helmut
strapped under her chin
cruel whisper of the crop
as it slashes the air

Leather boots creaking
voicing restless agitation
back, forth and back again
thru the carpet forest

A card on a silver tray
brought by cutaway butler
shredded to hurled confetti
a moment of red rage

Silky shoulders slump 
like a deflated ballon
then her arrogant chin lifts
a fox smile on her lips
