MOEM (after Frank O'Hara)
Mariano Rivera has collapsed!
I was trotting along and suddenly
it started raining and snowing
and you said it was hailing
but hailing hits you on the head
hard so it was really snowing and
raining and I was in such a hurry
to meet you but the crowd on the sidewalk
was acting exactly like the sky
and suddenly I see a headline
MARIANO RIVERA HAS COLLAPSED!
there is no snow in Kansas City
there is no hail in Yankee Stadium
I have been to lots of ballgames
and acted perfectly disgraceful
but I never actually collapsed
oh MARIANO RIVERA we love you get up.
