The Anger / The Horse / The Fox / The Root / The Dark

by Landon Habibi


I am slow

Like thunder.


Hot with air,

I hit the head.

Or what about the heart?


I go down, 

Down,

Down,

To strike


Nothing.

//

The horse shook

Like an old

Tin can.


He feels nothing,

He is nothing,

But he can.


He still can.

//

A fox is a fox

In a fox. That


Is a fox.

//

This is a root.

A root digs

And vibrates

The soil

To a flatter space.

//

I love the dark

So much more 

Than the stars


Because he is friendly.
