The Dilapidated Ballpark Stadium Retrieves A Night From Its Past

Paris, Texas - 1953

high in the bleachers, we sit beside
our guest lady of honor until
dusk arrives to end apprehension.

far below, inverted from deserted sky,
stars begin to flow a stream onto
the field aglow with stadium lights.

THIS PROPERTY CONDEMNED - KEEP OUT

upon my goodbye some ten years hence,
dismay at its ruin has crept into
every creak of the rotting boards.

i peer upward at weathered eaves
to behold the bold and gigantic
horn loudspeakers reigning in eerie

silence over their domain's decay.
