Idle Comment

by Stephen Jones

There’s no reason to argue
or to spew

The American League East
is the best


Boston?  New York?  Tampa?
Baltimore too?

(And Toronto in the mix as well?)

But to shift gears
and memory/years:

Despite all the hiccups
the HGHs and PEDs

baseball the purity of it
continues to confound/explain

why a summer day or in rain
ball-to-bat glove-and-ball

fascinates us all
