Equality

A dandelion, and a horse, head bowed, nibbling at dried grass.
Four decks of cards, and a cloud shaped like a clover.
Cuts of meat in a display case, and tired rowers coming up to the quay.
Naked shoulders, from the back, and a bicyclist headed up a hill.
Teen angst, and a pressure vessel.
Two orangoutangs, and a missal.
Cheap whiskey, and a measure of peace.
Twice rejected in an afternoon, and memorizing the times tables.
An eaten peach, and sundry sandals on a beach.
Colliding with the smell of a newly mown lawn, and the shadows of sunrise.

A man, explaining life to a woman, and a woman, listening to the music in her body.
