A Reluctant Wind

Kurt Philip Behm

The bums and the heroes

of revolution


As drawn to the cosmos

a light

travels deep

He asked for no quarter

playing outside

the game

His legion in shadows

he’d never


Each song once it’s sung

his interest


To blind repetition

he couldn’t


The critics in reference


his fame

As the midwestern

prairie wind

—calls out his name


(Ode To Bob Dylan: November, 2023)
