What are you thinking of

as I pass my fingers

through your manes coarse wool?

I take your cheek into my palm,

you root my coat for food,

shiver a little. It is cold here,

in the bare fields, under blank cloud.

You wander between the stark wire

bending to eat, running now

and then. I would do the same

removed from home and company,

taking the warmth of a strangers hands

light and hesitant, like the rain.
