Abstract

Hannah Craig The Horses Back then snow would erase all but gray roads shearing away at stippled fields. On cold days, the horses would stand all day near the south wall of the stable, their forelegs sheathed in mud. There was a walnut tree grew there, interlocked knuckles skidding across the snowy paddock. And those days, riding with Regina in her troubled Honda, having just come from the warm houses of our mothers, we'd prepare ourselves for the horses, winter growth of manes and tails, fuzz and fur, by winding up a throwing arm. Aloft the half-bit breakfast apple, for a moment, like some fat-bottomed bird, a spit red jewel in its set of so much snow. The knobs caught in our throats, the fabula of mildewed kitchens, vengeful mamas. Regina, wet-haired, glossy, tough, would push a tape into the deck, Snoop Dogg, let's say, and some swift curse would seem to set the scene. Bitch please. I gives a fuck. Or that one perfectly knowable refrain-- I never a met a girl that I love in the whole wide world. Pessoa's Window It is not enough to have the idea of a window. Or even the dream
