by Hart Seely


Surrendering doubles,
Hurling ‘neath a frown,
Dwelling o’er his troubles,
.            Javy’s feeling down.


Cries from the bleachers,
“Take him out! The clown!”
Mad, hurful creatures…
.             Javy’s feeling down.


Balls soaring higher,
Far across the town,
Javy’s serving sliders,
.              Never coming down.


Hart Seely is the author of O Holy Cow: The Selected Verse of Phil Rizzuto and Mrs. Goose Goes To Washington.  His Yankee blog, It Is High, It Is Far, It Is….caught, is a must-read for pinstripe fans everywhere.
