Batter Up

"Strike three," he says.
His third call to her
remained unreturned
and any wishes of a connection
gets retired back to the dugout.

Now he stands alone,
mending the mound
and readying himself for
the next batter to
step up to the plate.

Some have complained that
his pitching is too complex,
wishing he would just
stick to something straight
and right over the middle.

But a fastball is
not his best pitch
and he likes the variety
he can present every time
he steps to the mound.

Maybe one of the ladies
will see he pitches not to fool
but pitches what he knows
and she won't be afraid
to take her swings.
