i felt it was ceramic
i met the saddest horse in the world twenty feet to the left of this scene; it's neck grazing the barbed-wire fence just out of frame. the road cutting through this beautiful scene... my rubber soles pressing gravel to manufactured earth. it felt cliche and somehow fake, as if these animals knew some horrible truth but held face for the passing cars. it felt hollow and fragile, and by merely standing there, by being human, i felt responsible.
