11. Baseball

As a tomboy

it only made sense

that I would find baseball.

 

As a girl

it only made sense

that I wouldn't find a team.

 

And so I found the only thing left.

I "played catch"

- to the point

I could catch anything.

- to the point

the sleeve on my throwing arm

became tighter than the sleeve on my left arm.

There was no better badge,

there was no better honour

than my tight sleeve.
