The alpha mare

She snorts, spins,
writhes
snake-like
her entrails clench as if,
revolted at herself,
she might explode any second now.

The horse-tamer
sits, smiles, awaits in silence
because she realizes
that emotions impair sentiment.

Feelings,  not emotions, are needed here.

Soon, the mare will subside
atuned in body and soul
realizing that commitment
(and compromise)
can be lived with after all.

And they’ll have a long path to ride together.

(Claudia Leschonski, July 2003)
