Bayaw Renga II

Sorry, mga bayaw, ngayon ko lang na-post. Isa-isa muna. :)

Horses nod when they neigh.
I witness this countlessly in the night.
They prance around in the darkness,
restless and affirmative, though
the lights are dimmed and my questions
are far-flung.

A yes returns at these odd times, silent
complicity and radiant noise. I cast
away my shadow: it's agreement
is too imperceptible.

The horse looks at me
and I agree.
