Ponies

Momentum, don’t fail me now

if one horse goes astray

then all bets are off

 

a dust storm of halting ponies

sliding in the dirt

just because one pony’s legs gave out

 

laying with one eye

pointed towards the sky

like a train car

 

the ones that follow skid

into one another

with nowhere to go

 

you stand

10 rows away

in the rafters

 

your throw your cigarette to the ground

and close your eyes

speaking as if the horse can hear you

 

Goddamn it,

I really, really,

needed to win today
