Today's poem is by Albert Goldbarth
"Off in the darkness hourses moved restlessly"
a typo in Clifford Simak's A Heritage of Stars
We believed they were horses; and so
we saddled up, we rode expectantly
through the long day and into the night.
Then we dismounted; and slept; and still
they continued to carry us
the hours. They wouldn't stop.
They carried us clean away.
