Three Thin Shadows

Matt Dennison

Once you sell your horses
you’re never the same.

That’s not necessarily true,
just an attempt to say

the unsayable as loud
as the wounded frog

roaring across the valley
from a roadside ditch.

Matt Dennison’s work has appeared in Rattle, Bayou Magazine, Redivider, Natural Bridge, The Spoon River Poetry Review and Cider Press Review, among others. He has also made videos with poetry videographers Michael Dickes, Swoon and Marie Craven.
