The Stubborn Horse

A stubborn horse stands in the desert.

A tub of water sits at his feet.

The horse is thirsty.

The water is wet.

But there is no movement.

Not a twitch.


The horse is my father.

The thirst is depression.

And the water is any kind of help.

An obstinate stallion wasting away in the desert.


I’m so mad I could spit.

Just saying.

Until tomorrow…
