the flu haze

a bad wild pony
a wild pony that is covered with burrs and has never been ridden is a bad bet. you will clean it up, you will spend years treating it with love and brushing its tangly hair, convincing it that you mean well, and

then one day a rustler will come and steal it, once it’s tame and pretty, and never realize how much work it took to shine it up and how many carrots it ate…

fucking ponies.
