The Playoffs

by Stephen Jones

The baseball calendar has come almost
full circle. Last Spring’s possibilities
are now October playoffs. A home run
speaks volumes, as does hard pitching.

Now the August nosebleed chorus shouting
is history. This is baseball’s circus time,
its center ring where round ball, round bat
become convention, the norm of history.
