Pony Ride in the Sky

by James Morehead

pony ride in the sky
with daddy holding the reigns
                                               out front
and me on top
keeping one-eyed teddy
close to the steaming thick-haired body

we sail through airless space
the beaten dirt path
                                forgotten
below

"daddy
           don't go too high
 mommy might see us
                                    and worry"

and falling back to earth
whistling through red brown autumn treetops
a cascade of broken branches
that follow us
                     down
