…of All That is Seen and Unseen…

By Stuart Shea

Never got to see
Parc Jarry.
Ebbets and the Polo Grounds
Remained unfound.
Forbes Field
To me unrevealed.

But I did run with glee
Through old Comiskey
And Tiger Stadium
Was like a palladium
And Milwaukee County
An endless bounty.

Dank, damp, and rusty,
Outmoded and fusty,
But to me much more fun
Than Wrigley, say, has become.

    When we arrived in MI in the late 90s we found a treasure in Tiger Stadium – old, beat up, clean as a whistle, and filled with real baseball fans (FICK!!!!!!!!!!!)… Comerica sucks.
