Nothing smells like a horse's mane...

(An infinity of olfactory intoxicants -
sweet grass, hay, and sighs 
of sweet mint -
shuddering long breaths,
thick muscles, warm necks:
Horses will surely save me
unto my very depths.)

Of men, I've had too many,
but fewer have I known; 
I've left my share a-plenty
before the rising dawn,
yet when the sun collapses
from light too great to bear,
it will be horses who will save me 
from the dark that finds me there.

Horses will surely save me,
Yes, this must somehow be.
My horse, how he must save me,
in his Great Simplicity.
Fundamentally unbroken,


           Heart-Wild and Spirit-Free


my horse, unbound by falsehoods
will guide my soul to me.

I have shown up heavy in heart,
vanquished by life's turns,
unable to find daylight,
all happiness seemingly burned.
Then, meeting his gentle fierceness
and feeling his supple stride,
I am sure my horse can save me
as we head out West to ride.

Horses will surely save me,
Yes, this must somehow be.
My horse, how he must save me,
in his Great Simplicity.
All is not lost in his presence,
kind and true and strong -
My horse, he's sure to save me

(I only pray it won't be long...)
