Black Rock Beach


A thousand angry horses

foaming at the mouth.


Behind them is a haven:

the stretching disc


where grey Atlantic sea

meets grey Atlantic sky.




The beasts reject this refuge

choosing, instead, to face


the obstinate rocks.

One by one, spines twist


and recoil — water, as always,

turning back on itself.

David Huebert works, lives and writes in Halifax. His poetry and fiction have appeared in journals such as Event, Matrix, Existere, Vallum and The Antigonish Review.
