Supreme Satisfaction

Writer's Digest PAD challenge, day 8
For today’s prompt, write an inanimate object poem. Obviously, you could write an objective poem about an inanimate object, or you can write from the perspective of the inanimate object. If you can think of a third option, have at it.

But for the pounding hoof of
race horse in her chest
But for the salty silver
trickling silent down her face
she is as inanimate
as the mat that bore the action
Where now she pauses
for thirty seconds
of supreme satisfaction
