sweat falls from my pores, rolling down the hairs on my skin. Air sharp against my skin, the ball moves like a pinball between feet, cleats sticking into damp sod, grass clippings cling to legs, the field torn up and half muddy, bright lights illuminate the field, attract bugs. Cleats in baseball are much more dangerous, metal spikes that screw into the bottom of the boot, capable of tearing flesh and red dirt in one slide. I remember gatherings after games, graffitied tables covered with tin foil pans of oranges and spam musubi's, nursing leg cramps and throwing cups of water at each other, stinging sweet of vitamin C on my cold sore, dripping down my chin I toss the rinds in the garbage like it's a basket.
