horse

img_8280

what is this monumental quiver of silk under my hand?

the heavy shift of muscle against my side

what is this black liquid pool of soft-contemplating eye?

the sudden tattoo of hard hoof on the hard land

what is this crushing weight

this weightless chthonic grace?

this energy exploding from the earth

and collapsing gravity and space

what is this horse but an embodiment of sheer force?

lifting my body

and hurling it forth
