Lamentations of a Pale Horse
Untethered, uncorseted
You slowly wobble

Towards me
Spinning with the Earth

The horse and the blue mist chronicle rock
O how gloriously you fuse

A white spectral contour of melancholy

My every evening walk
Past the strawberry mango tree

and breathe together
to empower ourselves.

Some would say the same of prayer
and holy communion
and secular communication
and healthy relationships.

Democracy seems like an empowering experience
