A man’s hat…

A man’s hat    blown off his head

whizzes through the fat old tree    down the

bowling alley    along the foul line

just over the fence of the Old School

one-handed catch on the fifty

yard line    by design    a Bob Cousy lay-up

down the foul line    from Tinkers to Evers

to Chance    by chance the wind whips the hat

past the ball park    Polo Grounds    Coogan’s Bluff    Ebbets Field

no longer there    a Carl Braun set-shot if ever

there was one    rounding second    the hat

racing around third    Duke Snider    no    Carl Furillo

           picks up the ball    wings it on the fly

                     to Campanella where    is it safe?    out?

                                 where the hat    has found its head
