Your target—his hands clenching the bat.
Grip the ball with a falcon’s claw and roll
over the top as you release, snapping that
red seam down into the plate’s black hole.
Heat it hard so the pitch comes fast
and a bit wild, inside middle so it breaks
in toward tender knuckles as he takes
a stuttering stride and swings right past.
