By Flushing Bay

as others cleave gates and wait on-deck in fearful circles
as I must ply gamboling grapplingrateful for fiber-optic streams

as immortal diamonds ebb and flubb beyond mobile coils
as mighty captains flail in their pumpkin-colored nights

as frost-nibbled noses glad-band in the land of Festivus
as hearts are swallowed by chalk-lined bellies abloat with beer

as in opposing dugouts windblown eyes squinting from hollow pits
as in opposing dugouts players screaming howling squalls of sorrow
as in opposing dugouts smiling stretching vomitting squeals of joy
