Bones

Horse in Search of Green Windows

By Mike W. Blottenberger | Posted 5/6/1998

Hooves making cadence
on dusty, cobblestone streets;
the smell of ripened bananas
and a heavy pail of dung.

Sad eyes lost in the city,
searching for green windows
opening to sparsely settled valleys
and visions of grass.
