Doc Gooden

feeling the ball
his palm grasp
the knowledge
of spin

specks of decision
fell like a steady rain
eyeing his catcher
they spoke a
silent language

his youthful heart
jumped a pattern
of nervous beats
before imparting
a restful note

readying his stance
his two fingers played
the part so familar

focused with determination
the curve ball breezed
past the determined batter
with a strike
