Ink Stained Cuticles

This is the last instant
I can sit here
in crosslegged meditation
signaling to the world
all is okay
off the top of my knees.

A sports reporter
sits on the couch,
stares at a stopwatch
and records splits
on lapses
of empty mindedness,
as I blurt out
baseball scores
and stat lines
from Mickey Mantle’s
favorite summer.
