The morning after he watched this colt win the Belmont Stakes-- the Triple Crown; Heatherly saw the gifted horse had won still more. A poetic treatise on human well-being from a racehorse! A poetry breakout! And, likely, the best poem in over 250 years of thoroughbred history
All reports about the colt during four months, seemingly attained to more than the Triple Crown. In four sittings, from June 3 to July 4 (16 hrs); fuller, wider and deeper meanings of the American Pharoah phenomenon unfolded within one maverick, original, life-time, philosopher-poet-essayist, and lately, songwriter. There are, after all, thinkers; and then, there are visionaries of human well-being. Authentic visions of wholesome humanity are scarce -- midst rampant visions of money!
