<p>at the track today,<br>

Father's Day,<br>

each paid admission was<br>

entitled to a wallet<br>

and each contained a<br>

little surprise.

<p>most of the men seemed<br>

between 30 and 55,<br>

going to fat,<br>

many of them in walking<br>

shorts,<br>

they had gone stale in<br>

life,<br>

flattened out....

<p>in fact, damn it, they<br>

aren't even worth writing<br>

about!<br>

why am I doing<br>

this?

<p>these don't even<br>

deserve a death bed,<br>

these little walking<br>

whales,<br>

only there are so<br>

many of<br>

them,<br>

in the urinals,<br>

in the food lines,<br>

they have managed to<br>

survive

<p>in a most limited<br>

sense<br>

but when you see<br>

so many of them<br>

like that,<br>

there and not there,<br>

breathing, farting,<br>

commenting,<br>

waiting for a thunder<br>

that will not arrive,<br>

waiting for the charging<br>

white horse of<br>

Glory,<br>

waiting for the lovely<br>

female that is not<br>

there,<br>

waiting to WIN,<br>

waiting for the great<br>

dream to<br>

engulf them<br>

but they do nothing,<br>

they clomp in their<br>

sandals,<br>

gnaw at hot dogs<br>

dog style,<br>

gulping at the<br>

meat,<br>

they complain about<br>

losing,<br>

blame the jocks,<br>

drink green<br>

beer,<br>

the parking lot is<br>

jammed with their<br>

unpaid for<br>

cars,<br>

the jocks mount<br>

again for another<br>

race,<br>

the men press<br>

toward the betting<br>

windows<br>

mesmerized,<br>

fathers and non-fathers<br>

Monday is waiting<br>

for them,<br>

this is the last<br>

big lark.

<p>and the horses are<br>

totally<br>

beautiful.<br>

it is shocking how<br>

beautiful they<br>

are<br>

at that time,<br>

at that place,<br>

their life shines<br>

through;<br>

miracles happen,<br>

even in<br>

hell.

<p>I decide to stay for<br>

one more<br>

race. <br>

<br>
