baseball makes up my life

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


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
