Random stuff, poems, stories, whatever I feel like writing
Baseball Music

Curly hair
Dark- a curtain pulled across a silent stage
Long and tousled
Hiding a shy, secret smile.

(What's your secret, boy?)

A beautiful heat coloring his face,
Timidly blushing pink-red
Colors of sunburn,
Late Spetember afternoons-
Spent swinging metal bats and stealing bases.

(Is it baseball? Is baseball your secret, boy)

Or maybe......
Just feeling......uneasy-
Too much attention in a new school?

(Please dont be shy, boy.)

Tentative words begin to spill
From his pen
Filling the lines of a red notebook-
Not poetry, not narratives,

(Why did you share this with me, boy?)

But songs, bitter sweet songs-
Songs about love, about laughing, about learning,
Songs about leaving.....

(Is it music? Is music your secret boy?)

Leaving was the secret, teacher.
I had to leave......I had to go.....
I found a better place-
With days of Baseball,
Long innings set to Melody,
And Harmony that slams and sulks, supports and soothes,
Music is my coach now.
Music is my teacher.

Tell my friends, teacher.
Tell the boys.
Tell them......

These days,
I swing bats, and......
A song whistles on the wind.

Do you hear it teacher?
Do you hear it friends?
Do you hear my baseball music?
I have no secrets.
I never did.
(You just had to listen.)

Thank you boy.................
I'm listening.
