HOME RUN *

driving west on dodge, listening
to the royals and the indians on the radio
the commentary was grey and foggy
like the missouri river in november
as we got to 72nd street
george brett hit one out of the park
that’s twelve and counting so far this season
looking thru the windshield I could see
the moon was punching a hole in the night sky
right then she told me she was leaving
all she ever did to me was walk away
anyhow the royals won the game
in the eleventh inning
it was a double header
