Baseball . . . Soon

by Stephen Jones

Sure ’nuff baseball starts
fan-world balanced on
a new season
by game beer brats

The season-to-be first
pumped by fist
then applause dismays
& maybe applause again

The moments/the pitches
the at-bats & skewed recoveries
brilliant plays or errors by inches
or a bunt called fair

Anticipate whatever
moments of baseball & history long
a long time is April-October
& a baseball song
