Smell of playoffs
in the air
But wild card looks
to get Marti nowhere.

Sell Rendon?
“That’s the ticket”?
THEN see whether anyone
runs through the wicket.

Why must we
of sports clubs in D.C.
follow this hydra-headed jinx
until we’re all out of links?

Mayn’t a fan merely
adore the home team
how naive though
that may seem?
