This week’s featured poem from Slate is entitled This Horse and it’s written by Rebekah Stout. As always, I’d recommend heading over to the Slate poem page and listening to the audio version of this poem. Not only is it a great experience to hear poetry read aloud, it’s especially awesome to hear it read by its author. So take some time to check out This Horse and hear it read by Rebekah Stout.
