Dark Horse

Powerless, the horse,
trained not to know
her power.
Yet her eye wonders.
She bounces
into the hot
and sandy stable yard
into the piercing light.
Towering over the girl
who commands her with one
rope, fair and small the girl
against the black bulk.
she whacks her horse
into line,
this is hard love.
black horse tells us
black horse tells us
with her eye
she begins to know her power.
