Perfect Pitch

a poem by Gary Gildner

These soft Indian summer spells
on the mountain, no fires about
and therefore clear as joy clear out
to the Gospels, I gratefully slip on
my old Rawlings and slap, without heat,
a baseball in the pocket.
I hold it like an egg.
It’s a relief from the game
I’ve been facing too many nights now
. . .
