baseball / David Rutkowski


baseball

we will go to the park
on an iffy night when rain
may douse the field
with waiting
i will see how the field bats
adjust to the raindrops
my theory: the slenderness
of mosquito makes them hungry
in the stands
women so thin
they wear lead shoes
on windy days
tonight we will eat squid
and root for the lions
as our noise tools
prepare our eardrums
for quiet
nevermore
