baseball makes up my life

BY: Lathen Secord

Quotation

"Poets are like baseball pitchers. Both have their moments. the intervals are the tough things"

THEME:

the theme of this is don't let fear hold you back from doing something that you love.

Fastball by Dwayne Brenna




sniper fire

from the UN-grassy knoll

cocaine high

you see in living color after that

pure white smoke

and bee bee at the knees

arrives like a punch in the face

or a pail of cold water

and hops and sometimes drops

and sometimes disappears

(ask any ump)

and thwack goes the mitt

a Foley artist couldn't make that sound


statement of unbending bluntness

black and white

and no détente

you on that side

me on this

and hit it if you can
