poetry by j matthew waters

working through the off-season

she stitched and sewed all winter long
almost feverishly
covering cork and rubber and yarn with
whatever kind of hide she could find
having promised her boys of summer
the only way they would not play ball
would be due to the most severe
inclement weather

april two thousand seventeen

  2. I like this a lot. Perfect timing for a baseball poem.
