.every ER doctor's dream
there is a huge dusty track circling the village square.
heavily decorated horses wearing amulets, wooden jewelry, and headpieces
are racing each other
the horses are drunk
the riders are drunk
and the crowd lining both sides of the track, are drunk.
the dust so thick
you can barely see the horses
until they gallop right past you.
where the dancing
the real drinking
is in the middle of the circle
and the only way to get there
is to dart out in front of the horses
the whole village was there
the safest situation imaginable
