You are Heathcliff
I am Heathcliff
both able

                        and we are off
                             beat and our heart beats

                                              like a nomad-bastard racing bareback on horseback our undivided days



I am with you
all ways

as we ride on unsaddled
in the same stable kept

surviving from and free of
killer instinct

Consider for your work shop:

there's no such word as "broem" in Afrikaans. The correct word is "besem", defined in English as:
a cleaning implement for sweeping; bundle of straws or twigs attached to a long (very long) handle.

In the interests of creativity

Mike, you are a rascal. At least you stick to your chosen form, so brief and now you invent words. If only we apprecaited your work more.
