Kay Ryan’s Grazing Horse

October 5, 2011

Some days are horse crazy. Read, pull up the covers and hide.

Grazing Horses
By Kay Ryan

Sometimes the
green pasture
of the mind
tilts abruptly.
The grazing horses
struggle crazily
for purchase
on the frictionless
nearly vertical
surface. Their
furniture-fine
legs buckle
on the incline,
unhorsed by slant
they weren’t
designed to climb
and can’t.
