Poem-A-Day Reprint : Gut-buster

This is an edit of an earlier poem-a-day.

Gut-buster 7/11/2010

A horse walked into a bar
            on hind legs

The subtle arching

            below knees to hoof
is what caught my eye

            That this was a real honest-
to-god horse

            It had balls and cock
and the whole wax
            of mane running Fabio


He sat alone in the corner
            ordered some horsey
drink – I watched all night


            Dark oil pool eyes
blinking at me
