Poet’s Corner

Break all the bats
Bag up all the balls
no —
toss them instead over the fence, one by one,
their proper place
for the dogs
to run wild in the streets with
never to return
Brush away the chalk-lines
no fair no foul no more
Tear up the scorecards
the ticket-stubs
the pre-season predictions
Rip each fat finger
from the deep breaking pocket
of your Rawlings glove
Wrench the bases from their moorings
Bury home plate deep in the cold dead earth.
Vance Worley has been sent down.
Vance Worley has been sent down.
Vance Worley has been sent down.

One thought on “Poet’s Corner

  1. This captures my feelings after 8 losses. I will await the joyous poem when the Twins get back on track. Hopefully soon. Poor Vance.
