Three Candidates for the Hall of Fame
By Mikhail Horowitz
Einstein, mit a catcher's mitt?
Either he's gonna catch them curves, or
Sad Sam Beckett, foot in the bucket.
Waiting for Lefty Godot, Malone fans.
Sun Ra, on base in outer space.
Each hieroglyphic on the scoreboard
Corresponds to a run on the keyboard.
MIKHAIL HOROWITZ is the author of Big League Poets (City Lights, 1978), a compendium of ballplaying poet collages. His poems and artwork have appeared in numerous baseball anthologies including Baseball I Gave You All the Best Years of My Life and Into the Temple of Baseball.
