Mane and Tale

Let’s swap war stories and see who’s is worse.

Let’s go hunting and figure out who balks

when it comes to the kill-shot.

We can make plans to spend the Holiday’s together

before you cancel, knowing that our parents

have nothing

more in common than we do.

Or we could go to Gatlinburg, and I can spend

the entire time wondering why

I ever decided to leave the farm.

Let’s see who is happier at happy hour

or in the hallway of a barn with no lights,

watching the storm roll in over the mountains.

I’d rather polish tack with a stray dog and a barn cat

for company, with a horse who knows

when to look to the horizon and move

on to greener pasture.
