Horses Explain Things to Me


Today is a crash course on moving gently.

How to take a gift from someone so gingerly

they believe they still have it. If you move

soft enough through the wind or woods,

they say the sun will make a space for you.

Some of your regrets might soften. I move

terribly. I crush twigs and spiders but the horses

say nothing of it; they let me pet their long manes.

I hop on and we walk out to the end of wanting.

What is God? I ask them. They tell me, Yes.
