RambleAmble More Poems Song Lyrics Back to Index     


two horses   

in my real life
two horses have watched me
climb the possible hill
their heads like shadow
beyond shadow –

fenceposts hold each other's hand
as they advance,
lean and uneasy, down
cynical depressions of this
middle world

where hope's a detour
snaking through
the ardent weedy pastureland, and I'm
turning the hollows
into horses
