For 2016's National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo), Troy's Work Table is writing thirty poems in thirty days, but only publishing three lines (or less) from each rough draft poem here at TWT.


For me
it is four horses
forever bursting forth
from the fiery timbers of the stable


Four lines of new poem "Four Horses," an alliterative and ekphrastic poem inspired by The Burning Stable, an oil painting by Adolf Schreyer.

There are many more than four horses attempting to flee the barn, and, in fact, five feature prominently in the foreground, but then more than four doesn't set me up as well for the horses of the Apocalypse.
