TUESDAY: Luis Tiant, Civil War Headstones

Luis Tiant

Turns his back
winks at God
swivels his hips

Strike one

No wonder —

See him dance,
naked in his way,
unashamed
to love —

rattled
batters miss

 

Civil War Headstones

— Culpeper, VA

Like the stones
some names
are like little doors

Fate Stewart,
two rows over
from Gip Sword
