Steve Klepetar

Swallow Island

I heard the horses nicker,
saw them gallop across the field
just as rain began pelting down,
and I thought of you then,

your long hair and your eyes,
how you would have loved
the sight of those wet beasts
kicking up mud as they raced for home.

Steve Klepetar drives a sixteen year old Toyota Avalon, which he hopes to pass on to his granddaughter in about two years.
