Shagging Flyballs

by Robert Lowes

Robert Lowes

How many mystics
have found themselves

at the exact spot,
in center, to receive,

with upraised hand,
a heavenly body

making its descent,
and felt the hard

smack of union?
But oh, those sprints

to the right place
in the first place--

lungs burning,
heart exploding.
