This is Vicki Hearne's Poem: an Ethology

Someone's got to give a shit about horses
Or develop a better framework
Why can't a framework be made for horses?
Their flesh "rippling" as you say
Who has been inveterately their rider

What golden rings abound in that Open
Ground the animal being coeval
To which ignited birth what Spinoza promised
A socius first for our powers to be so attuned
So as to discover what a body can do
To be for power and to praise

Horses joyful of each element their own
As they gallop they offend no body
No thing do they defeat but a nature
No thing is heir to no air too much
For breath nor silicone exigent to merely be
