Horses and Headless Men

Ask me about the horses–
blacks and bays, dapples
and greys–

and the sleek white stallion
who cuts the night like
a razor, bathed in moonglow.

And their riders,
black-garbed and silent
in their boiled leathers.

Silent as the graves they
left open, these men–
looking for the heads

that parted from them
at the moments of their
deaths.

Looking without eyes
for familiar faces
in an empty field

that once hosted a
black-hooded man,
and a hardwood block

an axe that brought
silent days and restless
nights. Ask me,

I saw them.

– S. E. De Haven (SnuffyArt)
