Ephemera

3 short poems capturing small moments from life in the Ten10 League.

Ephemera

A black cloud cannot
hold back his teardrop any
more. Match abandoned.

***

Walter R. Hammond
plays the scoop; a red
ball balloons, launched
like an anglers’ weight
to the deep boundary.

***

William Temple
rushed like a fool towards
a seamer’s paradise;
his shirt opened near to the
navel and his dog
collar flapping like a child’s
branch on Palm Sunday.
