MetaphorHorse (for Alex)

And someone did

At long last

Use my words

To contact me

Like the echo

In the canyon

Bumpity bump bump

Typed came back

Like a letter

Returned to sender

And I knew

That these words

That I write

Found their way

Finally to another

How many times

Have you been

Thrown from a

Horse he asked

A horse never

A metaphor horse

Far too many

Times I replied

And what do

You do then

He cautiously asked

I walk back

To the paddock

To find another

Far less ornery

I replied laughing

One like me

He shyly asked

One like you

I said trotting

Hopefully once again
