HORSE LATITUDES

THE BARN IS BURNING
THE RACE-TRACK IS OVER
FARMERS RUN OUT W/

AN ENTIRE SKY)

THE CLOUDS FLOW BY

ABOUT THE LIGHTENING BOLT & THE MAST
 ON THE STEEPLE
SOME PEOPLE HAVE A HARD TIME
DESCRIBING SAILORS TO THE
UNDERNOURISHED.

THE DECKS ARE STARVING
TIME TO THROW THE CARGO OVER

NOW DOWN & THE HIGH SAILING
FLUTTERING OF SMILES ON THE AIR
W/ITS COOL NIGHT TIME DISTURBANCES
