Brazen he walks, shoes cut sharp as sails
roaming with the sky, careful
knees that tilt rather than bend,
White horse with dark mane, coattails
braced by his hull
holding his mast sturdy, his crown perched
adorned in sunglasses and
With whip and smartly clip,
he curls his eyes around what lies before him,
like the face of a mountain.

his attention, I think I’ll slip my leg
send him straight to the concrete.
I’ll avoid the earthquake his body creates
by springing to his aid,
