Year Of The Horse / new poems 2011

Long Shot (for C. Maxwell Anderson)

Deny, defy,
don't ask, don't get

An empty pocket full of regrets
is the price you'll pay instead
if you pull your punches

Remember then as you whip the horse blind
the odds are what keep it even in the end,
so ride your long shot until it drops dead
