THIS IS A POEM ABOUT HORSE WHISPERERS 7.14.17

Watching horse whisperer

tame wild mustang.

.

Taming is complete

when horse allows

trainer to lift its leg.

.

Human relationships

work the same way.

.

Courtship is complete

when I allow you

to touch my face.

.

If I recoil,

you’ve failed.

.

Relationship is over

when you touch my face

and I feel nothing.
