Wonderful metaphor. While the cuts from NY to Africa are quite good;
the horse, in each stage of its evolution, is sublime.

A novel in six stanzas.



P.S. In my own life, I think I've made it to the end of stanza two. Though there are a few differences: I can't afford
stainless steel appliances, granite countertops, and trips to Africa. I yearn to be normal, not different. Instead of crayon
drawings of horses, I draw red triangles and proclaim them to be real horses. I consider being lost and alone an advantage
as it limits the number of assholes I have to put up with to one. I hope the real truth - that I'm a red triangle -
is never revealed to me.

No kidding. If he tells me that he knocked that off at work during a few moments in-between, I think I'll shoot myself.
You can't hate me more than I hate myself.  I win.

"When the spirit of justice eloped on the wings
Of a quivering vibrato's bittersweet sting."
