New Start

“Nolan is retired.”
The word hits me
Like a line drive
Off the end of a powerful bat.
“Retired.”
The context.
Nolan will be back.
In another inning
With another chance.
But retired,
For me,
Languishes between
A bad bunt
In the last inning
Of the final game,
And what could be
Complete freedom
To play without rules.
