Pulse Poetry

A young horse, crashing from the gate
Around the bend, she needs to hold a footing
Not so sure
And in the home stretch
focus is a little difficult
when speed is consumed

An old jockey she knows
to build a fire that grows
and feed it patiently

But a young horse
can't slow down as easily as she would
to make the first bend with sure feet
and take the race, to be fed with that spirit and pride.
