The Base Stealer
Transcript of The Base Stealer
Both ways taut like a tight-rope walker,
Fingertips pointing to opposites,
Now bouncing tiptoe like a dropped ball,
Or a kid skipping rope, come on, come on!
Running a scattering of steps sidewise,
How he teeters, skitters, tingles, teases,
Taunts them, hovers like an ecstatic bird,
He’s only flirting, crowd him, crowd him,
Delicate, delicate, delicate, delicate—Now!
"The Base Stealer"
by Robert Francis
After moving to second on Anthony Gose's single, Vizquel stole third and scored when Kevin Youkilis failed to cover the bag, trotting home after Pierzynski's throw hit him and bounced into foul territory.

White Sox beat Blue Jays 9-5"

describes thought process
tells the facts
says who's who
easy for research
shows what happened
shows background of the whole game
easy to hear / visualize
why not just show me with a video?
why not just tell me what happened?
reporting has its strengths
& video is powerful
Poetry takes the
ultimate human invention:
and makes it sing
