The Fan Zone

He yells at the screen every game,
imploring, demanding, lamenting
that they must run faster, jump higher,
throw further and try harder,
cover that last inch or two
to achieve, to win, if only
they would listen.

And the players always sigh
look at each other and tell him
“yeah, we’re doing what we can.”

Fences

Season’s have playoffs,
Summer battles fall.
Mid-July high scores

Shed like leaves, forgotten
As the river valley breeze
Gives way

To wild card runs
Of Indian summers’
Late bursts of color,

A hail Mary pass,
A bottom of the ninth
Sideways hat rally.

Nature,
At
The

Plate,
The
Swing,

This
One’s
Going

Back,
Back,
Back…
