knight falls

i had set out
on my search
for her
envisioning myself
as galahad
or possibly
lancelot
astride my charger

yet
as i charge windmills
another series of
mistaken dragons
i realize
i always knew
which knight-errant
i truly was

the worry was
would she see me
as i am
or just another
rust covered fool
playing pretend
with a coconut
to sound out hooves
