Curious White Horse

Hello, shy curious person!
Why are you wearing that odd
extravagant outfit? It's not
time for tricks or treats.

Framed as you are, so foreignly,
by too much bulk, too many legs
that bend too many ways, and a field
and woods far from me now--

how is it that there is no distance,
none at all, between us?

Does my nose look as short
as yours looks long? Is my lack
of a tail as eloquent as the swish
of yours? If, despite the persuasive
detail of our differing costumes, I see
one like myself looking at me here,

why do I think I have to look at this painting
or anything through the eyeholes
of this human mask?
