Stallions run with nostrils
full flare, pounding
the flats in places
called Keystone, Gulfstream
and Aqueduct,
but here men
in gumshoes shuffle through
piles of white tickets
molten on the linoleum.
Each man has a horse,
each horse a number
in the hands of a man
chomping a tar veined cigar.
The T.V. bolts its digital results
and he throws his tickets
to the floor and all the no
good goddamn shit ass
fucking luck.
