It’s not statistical of quantifiable,

no numbers or formulas,

only a mystery that confounds and bewilders.
This is what makes the game unpredictable,

with struggles and surprises.
It’s an inexact science of the

greatest unknowns


outrageous challenges.
There are no experts,

only the lucky and unlucky.
It’s a game where few discover

the miracle

to spend the rest of

time together.

The only words used in this poem came from a Wall Street Journal article about baseball. The goal was to write a love poem using only those words.
