Today’s prompt for Writer’s Digest Poetic Asides poem-a-day challenge is “to pick an event; make that event the title of your poem; and then write a poem.

“Spring Play”

Check the tickets one more time
to make sure got the day right,
the game right. Join the throngs in
the tunnel from subway to ball
play and emerge underneath the
concrete majesty of the SkyDome.
Check the tickets one more time
to make sure got the aisle right,
the seats right. Sit back in the
empty row, chuck the jacket and
the hats on the seats next door, and
wait for the snack man to come up the
aisle bellowing. Crack goes the
bat as at last the game begins.
This is Spring. This is Blue Jays time.
