My favorite activity in sports

Was shagging fly balls

In the outfield,

Or fielding ground balls

In the infield.

Poetry is similar

To those skills.

You go into yourself

To grasp an object

Inside, or outside,

Of yourself,

And catch it

In mid-air

Or on the ground

In its aesthetic realm

To make it good,

Or exceptional,

In print,

The stadium

Of its practice,

And to get it out

Or get that out,

For all to see,

Or read.
