yankees vs. red sox, second installment

August 9, 2009

Here’s the second in a 3-poem series January and I are each working on while the Yankees play the Red Sox this weekend. This is the one where we’re not supposed to use the word “baseball.” I didn’t (I noticed I didn’t use it in the first poem, though, either).

I based this one on Friday’s game 2, which I was only watching casually, while I was out for girls’ night in Albany. I wrote most of it yesterday and put some finishing touches on it this morning. I am just now getting a chance to post (it’s been a day — a weekend, actually — of moving stuff out of the studio and finding them new homes here at the house). It’s not very baseball-y (although inspired by watching the game and its persistent score: 0-0), and it’s not extremely flattering, but it’s a draft I may be able to work with, so here it is: “Spending ladies’ night at the sports bar does not settle the score” at “i am maureen” (if you don’t have the password, leave a comment here).

I watched game 3 carefully and am preparing now to watch game 4. I’ll try to get my last poem out of something from one or both of those games.

    Now me, I’m so self-indulgent that all I ever do is whine. You want to set expectations early: if all they get is whining, they never expect anything else. Then everyone’s happy 🙂
