Horse and buggy

Last night I saw a stallion pulling a

buggy through Downtown.

It had various bags lapped over it’s frame.

Some for feed and some for shit.

The horse had blinders on to prevent

it from getting startled.

I imagined that the horse dreamed of grassy hills,

fresh water streams and thorn bushes

strewn with berries and snake foam luxuries.

The young couple in the buggy

held tightly to their camera straps

and roses wrapped in plastic.
