Heart Racing

If it's true a horse with a rider
is able to go farther and faster than one without -
then find my heart a winning jockey-
double quick. One without spurs, whip, or bit.
Sit him high and tight on the right ventricle.
Give us chomping room to burst open
the diastole gate. Slacken the velvet reins enough
to let vigor pump loud with purpose
finishing this race full well.
