baseball 4-7

Baseball
should be played in
warm sunshine, birds passing
cool breezes brushing the skin

Metal benches
sotted with muddy dirt
with old blankets thrown overtop
protecting jeans and hands

Spring showers
are fair game, just for sport
for the laughter of children
leaving the game wet and dirt-streaked

NOT freezing
wet heavy snow falling
blocking visions of players
leaving red burnt-cold cheeks

until
they don't care anymore
if they hit or miss
just so they can leave

and run home
