Tying The Horse

I was listening to Memo From Turner downtown. In between verses a 60s woman walked past and began speaking. I turned to see her among seven or eight bike staples, asking “Is this where I tie up my horse?” Then turning her head upward to ask the clouds threatening rain “IS THIS WHERE I TIE UP MY HORSE?”

A 60’s woman from the 60’s? Surely she was making a joke? I tend to ask more serious questions of the universe, such as why didn’t you tell this before? And where the heck is he? And why can’t I have a horse? Oh, and, where is my next job coming from?
