MARINO MARINI'S HORSES AND RIDERS
So we embrace our end in our beginning.
All we have to give each other is
Our breath, our darkness breathing
Life into the dying lungs of the night.
Enter my darkness, I give you
Together for one second we are light.
We proceed in beautiful devastating stages
Toward our end, as the horse and rider
Collapse together in the catastrophe of love.
I lie in the night of your breath.
There is only your breath, all else has gone.
The horse dissolves between the rider's thighs,
The world dissolves before the rider's eyes.
So now, in the animal darkness, come.
