Work # 101 Claine Keily

I stand in
the sun shower
beside my horse
and watch her feed
after a day
at the school
of uneven practice
where the dark boys
fight and tear up
and scream
and the girls blacker
made black by the world
continue to try
full of unfounded belief
that their work
will earn them
some times
of future ease


  1. a hard day in a great life, Claine, can only hope sometimes for 'some times of future ease' all round, in hard truth

  2. Yes James i feel sad that the deck is so unevenly stacked though and that the boys can do whatever they like and then go off and find a job where they are paid well!
