An Old Baseball and a New Haiku

little league ball

I’ve had this baseball since my days in little league. It may be scarred, but it’s still got some game left. (Click on the pic to see the scars up close.)

Buy yourself some peanuts and crackerjacks! The newest issue of bottle rockets is hot off the press, and with it my latest baseball haiku:

dead of winter—
I scratch and sniff the grass stain
on a baseball

by Chad Lee Robinson, originally published in bottle rockets #34, 2016

Many thanks to bottle rockets editor Stanford M. Forrester for publishing my work!
