the horse ducks

to avoid the picture
frame the general sees

too late. the rock
of mane, locks shocked,
barrel cocked

and stayed. orange is made
from rind and yellow
mandarin and zero

monounsatu-red. love
is laundry piling
up and folding

under where it pinches
of salty bitterness
and hate. words carry

the world in them
for what they're worth
in clouded air, not weight.
