  2. That’s me! That’s me! I’m in one of your poems! I’m the horse! There’s a lot of interesting stuff that I see in the blogs of people cycling across Australia, climbing Kilimanjaro, diving with manta rays, or whatever. I’ll daydream about it for a while, but then I remember that it’s a big, dangerous and (most of all) expensive world out there, so I turn again to my own safe little patch and pull up another mouthful of grass.

    (I’m being metaphorical, by the way. I don’t literally eat grass.)
