girl / horse

there was a girl
and by night
she was a wild equine
her hooves thundering into black dust
shards of moonlight in her mane
nostrils flared
flanks heaving
the air icy in her lungs
beneath a pelt the colour of charcoal
her muscles flowed
her eyes were starry and dark

recklessly,
the girl/horse galloped through the sky
the horse was brave
the girl was fearless
of failure
and so they dreamed
