Opposites AttractFor as long as he could remember, Lamont Toucey had been raised by his parents by a very strict budget which included limited toys. In his humble ten year old opinion, it sucked, a lot. It really wasn't his fault though. He liked to blame his parents because if they had more money, he'd be able to get that G.I. Joe action figure that he'd been begging them for. Instead he was stuck with a few old hand-me-downs from his father and a baseball that he found one day at a park.
The baseball was autographed by Babe Ruth and while Lamont wasn't necessarily a huge fan of baseball, he knew that Babe Ruth was a really good baseball player.

the loneliness of corners
crawling outward on walls--
chipped away by the wind,
and held together

against the sun
where beads of rain
gather in a mesh of strands

against the backdrop of a cemetery;
My eyes seek out the sermon
in close proximity,
paint no distance
between headstone and cloud;
elegies topple each other
in their climb to heaven
as light trickles
over the shade,
breathes a new glow over snuffed candles.
I feel the weight in these empty rows,
how a breath couldn't cease to be breath
in the midst of prayer.
