I’m sitting on my window seat surrounded
by my horse blanket I’ve had since I was an infant

I never had a horse, never ridden one for that matter
Living in an apartment in a sixteen story building doesn’t help things either

But now I just sit staring up at the sky
Even though its night there is hardly a star visible in the sky

All but the northern star that shines though the city’s musky
odors and smoke; ever shining, ever true.

I cannot help but wonder, is there a horse and her girl
