Horses gallop over the vast plain.
Going to look for the head of the Dauphin that is rolling
down the stairs.
The spirited horses shake out their long blue manes.
One holds in his teeth the white dead actress he drew from
Others carry the wind's message to vanished explorers,
Others carry wheat to peoples abandoned by their leaders.
The lean blue horses whinny toward the airplane,
Pound the hard earth with their shining hooves.
