Mottled Donkey

Mottled donkey 

The mottled donkey, 

Large ears up, 


Grazing, or just 

Standing near 

The race horse, 

Plays a role 

Almost invisible 

To us. The horse, 

The horse’s owners, 

Know the truth: 

The race horse 

Needs the donkey’s 

Calming presence. 

I am the donkey. 

I am that one.
