Opening Day – Yankee Stadium

by Stephen Jones

The Yankees are tattered —
already players are missing.
Jeter, Teixeira, Hughes,
Granderson . . . and A-Rod
(a “no show” already despite
his $27 million paycheck).

Still, it’s Opening Day.
The sun is bright, the field
manicured and green.  The crowd
is excited and passionate.
The first crack of the bat christens
Opening Day as timeless.
