Sometimes
I don’t want to show these poems
to anyone, sometimes
I want to remain hidden, deep in the coals
with the one who pulls the stars
through a telescope’s glass, the one who listens
for the click of the lock, the one
who kisses softly a woman’s eyes.

i cant believe this kid is younger than my little sister.

RIGHT? you are tiny. you are younger than me. you are an actual baby holy crap. geez, and him talking about how he was used to this because he played on the national college team.

they drafted him in june. they called him up in september. that is a) NOT NORMAL HOLY CRAP you do not. typically go RIGHT from the draft to the majors in the same year b) incredible. he’d been a pro for four months, they put him in a tie playoff game in extra innings, with the weight of 30 years’ hope on his shoulders, and he was great. what a kid.

I HATE THIS TEAM I LOVE THIS TEAM I?!??!!!!?!??!!!!!!!

right. what losers. also i don’t know if you’ve seen eno sarris’s story about selection for the player choice awards, but this:

"I think you should pick whoever you believe. Go with whoever you believe deserves it. It’s all an opinion. It’s just an opinion, so it can never be true. Whatever you feel is right for you is the perfect choice." 

has got to be the most hunter pence quote i have ever seen.

i mean they did get a whole movie about their GM. they’ve got some stuff going for them

yeah, def! they’ve hung around the postseason plenty too. mostly they’re just a) a small-market team b) in the shadow of a large-market team and c) a little unlucky.

Reporter: “What’s unique about Madison Bumgarner?”
Pence: “Everything.”
Reporter: “Could I ask you for one thing.”
Pence: “One thing is that he’s left-handed.”
Reporter: “Can you name another thing?”
Pence: “You’re changing the rules.”
Reporter: “Yes, I am changing the rules.”
Pence: “His name is Madison.”

Billy Collins

literarystarbucks:

Billy Collins goes up to the counter and orders a coffee, black, with cream.
It is warm, like childhood, like love, like losing yourself in your art.
He holds the cup in his hands and stares across the room.
There is a light on in the corner -
Underneath it is a woman, reading a book.
It is poetry. She is beautiful.
Why do we write? Because we want to get back to that Starbucks,
In that corner, with that cup of coffee.
We want to be young again, and drinking coffee.
"Drink coffee with me," and she does.
She is beautiful. It is poetry.

i feel compelled to note that the a’s have a semi-tortured existence themselves (small-market woes! having to play in a stadium the city council keeps trying to tear down, all because the MEAN giants are MEAN and won’t share any of their territorial rights! that time they traded yoenis cespedes and the faucets began pouring blood!) maybe if they win i’ll write about them.
