Sweat-stained pinch front Stetson,
the flat color of sand, perched
over straight eyebrows. I asked
after the swayback sorrel grazing
out with the yearlings behind
the barn. The man looked down,
shielding his eyes below the brim,
a quiet voice, “He was the kind
of horse you could get along with.”
Thin lips lingered above the rim of
a coffee mug, if there were more
words he thought better of them.
