Created with Fabric.js 1.4.5 After a RainstormBy Robert Wrigley Because I have come to the fence at night,the horses arrive also from their ancient stable.They let me stroke their long faces, and i notein the light of the now-merging moonhow they, a Morgan and a Quarter, have beenby shake-guttered raindropsspotted around their rumps and thus madeAppaloosas, the ancestral horses of this place.Maybe because it is night, they are nervous, or maybe because they too sensewhat they have become, they seemto be waiting for me to say somethingto whatever ancient spirits might still abide here,that they might awaken from this strange dream,in which there are fences and stables and a manwho doesn't know a single word they understand.
