D-Town Rises Again by KG Newman

For all the blight in the city and
blasphemies in the stands — cheerleaders,
five-dollar bottles of water, virtual
scoreboard races, the wave, overage fans
with gloves — purity still reigned: Kids
keeping book. Sun roasting the seats. A game
that takes as long as it takes. And,
just beyond the gates, a homeless man
asking only if the Tigers won.
They did.

 


KG Newman is a sports writer for The Denver Post. His first two collections of poems, While Dreaming of Diamonds in Wintertime and Selfish Never Get Their Own, are available on Amazon.
