I Need To Walk

 

I need to walk each morning

because there’s a horse that waits for me to rubs its nose,

though whether I stay five minutes or an hour,

I can never rub away its loneliness.

 

I need to walk

so I can talk to a white dog that prowls in endless circles,

forever haunted by a chain,

that cuts us both.
