Rapunzel

Through barred gate
past angry dogs and wet dreams
through lecherous forests
and the need for affirmation
I stumbled to the tower.

My broken leg
hanging at a desperate angle
taking necessary steps
lugging heavy fantasies
I reached her level.

Forgetting to knock
failing to catch my breath
as it howled in castigation
I broke down and shut the door
checking for wise women.

Sighing heavily
at my monotonous predictability
she unrolled her plaited hair
and shot me a bored smile.
She knew the ropes.
