opening the day

eighth inning

what they would call, a record & history of base ball,
as in, scoreless innings;
dodging & dogging yr way across the crooked & deceiving
off-speed balls, so

bases on balls are killing
the killers, w phantom hits

however: runs aren’t batted in
they’re batted around; we
were drinking, an official scorer
yelling foul at fair hits
a long posture on the hard benches
... the wave
shimmers across
shouted his location
to the batter
& older umpires at a seasoned
fielder, raises his left hand
for a ball
a few games where he
didn’t play at all
because the issue still cdn’t
be resolved—
