Big Red

Kurt Philip Behm

Where fire’s rage

no flame unfanned

The cinch retightened

no also ran


As horns go silent

the gate is dropped

 On victory’s path

his legend cropped


Unbridled passion

distraction flees

A trophy waits

as reins go free


The end in sight

where roses wait

Ablaze in glory

— outrunning fate


(Paris Kentucky: June, 1986)
