Noonan Gets Kneed

Noonan Gets Kneed

{3rd Inning, 05.19.13}


checked the runner on second

the lithe body of a centerfielder

scampering back to safety

patella: the unstoppable force

cruising incidentally into

mandible: the (almost) immovable object

and the stars come out.

slow it down, before you miss it


the incredible vortex of athleticism

and agility, fantastic attributes

quickfiring the synapses it takes

for the runner

to keep his foot on the bag

as all his inertia bowls him over

the compact car body of the second baseman

and reach to catch his

victim of incidence and physics

just as his visage goes dirtborne.
