Though this poem is available on a CD where B reads his poems, it's technically unpublished -at least with this title. It was probably written in '70 or '71, though an earlier date is possible as well.

Is he talking about odds?

The morning line refers to the odds that are given to each horse in a particular race BEFORE the betting public gets a chance to plunk down their cash - thereby changing the odds up and down according to who the public favors.
I wonder where "Love" usually ends up after the plunkers make their bets... :wb:
