Yonkers Results

I’ve seen a few men lose their minds


and the rest have lost their hair

at post time

the world is theirs

they feel like thoroughbreds

and their wallets are heavy.

I’ve seen men curse at flat screens

and blame “midget” jockeys.

It’s one of those sicknesses

that alcoholics visit

or is that the reason?

I’ve seen men try

to wring a few dollars

out of a program

and yell at women

for betting the pretty horse

and get violent in the grandstand

and age

and age

and age

with every exacta.
