Their words are perhaps as old as
race or religion or records, it’s all
told in strings of remote episode.
Winners write the story of this
horse’s opera. This jejune tale of
past and present and future.
His world is a pictorial, and
he is an accident of material.
He flourishes in this tapestry.
He is the thread and the needle,
weaving himself into history.
