Poetry #198
(published October 28, 2004)
A Green Monster Grins
by Jonathan Hayes
Swiftly, one October night
the ball is carried by the left field wind
over the bleacher wall
— six umpires convene like monks in black robes
to declare a homerun, and the beginning of the end
of the suffering for the Red Sox
and their fans.
