SILENT MOVIE DREAM

I’m barefoot on dirt
hardened by winter

 

water crashes wild
and I hear no sound

 

body chapped and stiff
in the cutting wind

watching horses race
through a gray river

 

hooves leave dark imprints
in dampened gravel

 

black horse tails whip past
blurring my vision

hands in coat pockets
you stand unflinching

 

you don’t speak a word
sifting away time

 

you bear a likeness
until we awake
