Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

shame

April 7, 2012

“a walk is as good as a hit”
is what they tell the kid
who can’t hit

teaching him to stay flat-footed
hiding his greatest hope
that he can just escape

imagining that discernment
is as valuable
as courage

wishing that bravado
was the same thing
as ability

secretly hoping
that he had the guts
to go down swinging
