I think about you swimming with horses. How you ride into sea at dawn. How the horse you love will leap at a wave. Tell me how the sky would break with light, and the horse would float when the beach fell away. How you both drift free, bobbing in the swell. How the legs gallop in the deep and you let the reins go. Hugging the horse like I am the horse.
