its your favorite metaphors

that are the ones

you need to keep to yourself

the ones you see most vividly

like louis riel galloping again

-and you don't even know the historical implications

you just saw from a window

a statue in gentle snow - a horse reared

a rider came alive

turned and galloped over a bridge

something was to come alive

-and for awhile

you believe it did

where is Riel riding?

I saw him melt into life one liquid night

all thats left is metal statues where he lay

but his melted liquid self is out there

enjoying himself - alive again

to laugh to love to meet and see

again and free

The End
