Photo Challenge & Poem: Story

Standing at his flank, in that sweet
curve where his barrel ebbs to the
swell of his hip, and gazing around
the arc of his shoulders toward to his

whiskered chin, past the old joints
and thick scars. Beyond the cold
winters and hard use, all the way
back to his spindly legs on morning

grass, his heartbeat pulsing under
thin skin, and a curiosity to his ears,
shiny and innocent. So long ago,
can he even remember such virtue?
