of all possible worlds
Monday, August 22, 2011
In grassy fields, boys and girls gather every summer
to swim in the long days of baseball--
this game of rules and certainty.
In winter we may carve up the world
and whittle our own hearts to dust,
but there was a diamond moment
of learning to wait for the ball
to fall easily into the glove,
while fathers in black and white shirts
called out, "Safe."
Called out, "Home."
