    round and round
    the trapped horse and fire front
    round and rou…..




    looking for a way out
    the firestorm races through valleys
    the stench of horror

          wildfires
          lick the ghosts
          of horses

            fire on the mountain--
            a pale horse flies
            into the haze
            ghost cave i brush aside the dharma of a lobster god

              too late to leave
              the old jockey could not
              start his car

                a pillar
                of flame
                the first
                of four
                in
                hot pursuit
                kindling
                the earth
                of
                the present
                for ignition

                emerging
                from the smoke and fire
                screaming horses

                  both ears ablaze
                  my internal dialogue
                  in the third person

                  hoofs fast galloping
                  fear unlocking wildfire-
                  a grand slam
