brewers baseball and things

on the other side of science street


the game was over.
it had all the ruminations.
i learned that word today – ruminations.
i like how it’s not only a thought process, but a cow chewing its cud.
there was a complete game in the game.
the winning pitcher won.
the lights at the bar across the street went on at 2 AM.
it was always that way.
they called it bar time.
some of the locals said it was no good to stay awake past 12
and yet,
they were still there, at the rail, drinking at 1:15.
because there’s always that chance of a forbidden kiss.

I grew up in Milwaukee and have been a Milwaukee Brewers baseball fan for as long as I can remember.

  1. Ah, the just-before-closing time hello and smile–the ultimate walk-off.
