No poems will come

It’s like hitting a baseball I think.
Today I strike out.
But the crowd in my head!
They’re throwing batteries and pool balls!
A rotund little fella seated behind the first base dugout cries:
“Send in Lorca!”
And the manager, who represents the violent and powerful dead on the bench
Approaches with his odor of blood.
