question

It”s Opening Day . . .
(well, the Red Sox start tomorrow)
I have moved from coffee shop
to brewery trying to catch
the metaphor.

Is it as simple as
the pitcher misses the strike zone,
the catcher misses the tag,
and I miss my mother,
who has been gone half a season
and won’t be here to see
Big Papi take his last swing
at Fenway?

Peace,
Milton

  1. Milton, did you catch Writers Almanac today. A lovely poem, “Catch”, by Joseph Mills. The title made me think of you. And your loves.
