• After a Rainstorm
    because i heard it coming
    i put the horses in their stable
    i go into the stable and stay with them
    i note the presence of the now oncoming storm

    how they are shaken by the sudden raindrops
    they are the ancestral horses of this place

    maybe because it is storming, they are nervous
    or maybe they sense a long night
    they seem to be waiting for me to say something

    that they might awaken from this dream within a dream
    in which there are no fences and stables
    and a girl who doesn’t speak
