    I'll settle for the 6 horse
    on a rainy afternoon
    a paper cup of coffee
    in my hand
    a little way to go,
    the wind twirling out
    small wrens from
    the upper grandstand roof,
    the jocks coming out
    for a middle race
    and the easy rain making
    at once
    almost alike,
    the horses at peace with
    each other
    before the drunken war
    and I am under the grandstand
    feeling for
    settling for coffee,
    then the horses walk by
    taking their little men
    it is funeral and graceful
    and glad
    like the opening
    of flowers. (Report) Reply
