Two Horses

–Luigi and Turner


The darker “bay” chestnut
With the fawn nose
Is impatient—thoroughbred
That he is, ears pinned
He says it’s time to eat.
Funny how his eyes betray him
Being pools of black kindness.


Half draft, half Welsh—
Pony in a big frame,
Rust on ice for a coat
With the longest mane
You’ll ever see.
He’s Dylan Thomas alright:
Though lovers be lost love shall not.
