Up Side Down On Dry Dock
for D.B.A.

I reject second base
second place, second best
as she is well aware

attempt all she can, when she can
to keep apart, two hearts, two parts
two players, attached to her tail

tale of two lives, tale of our lives
I without end, telling, relating
versifying, testifying

for better or worse
winners and losers
left upon sidelines, shorelines

upon the scrap heap of history
scraping out plates
scraping off paint
