PAD 14 Popular saying

Hold Your Horses

She’s fifty-six, childlike,
and used to getting her way.

Non-verbal, with useless legs,
dependent on others all her life.

Gets her point across
with a variety of sounds and signals.

Knows what she wants,
wants it now, insistent.

I must have said, “Hold your horses,”
a million times in the past fourteen years.

And it always makes her laugh.
