Horseshoe

back when there were horses
before their carts, there were
horseshoes for luck in school
with no homework on backs .

the horses have since bolted
to the Himalayas where they
now climb us to phallic gods
we are spared the ignominy
of putting a cart before horse

our wishes have not stopped
the equine run even for a day.
