END OF HORSES
I write to you from the end
of the time zone. You must realize
that nothing survived after
the horses were slaughtered.
We sleep below the hollow
We look into dust bowls
searching for horses.
When you walk in the country,
you will be shocked to meet
substantial masses on the road.
We do not know whom to blame
or where the horses were driven,
who slaughtered them, or for what
purpose. Had the horses slept
under the linden trees? The generals
and engineers pucker
and snore on the veranda.
First published in chapbook, Ghost Moose, Margo Taft Stever, Kattywompus Press, 2019. Forthcoming in Canary: A Literary Journal of the Environmental Crisis.
