Vivian Wong. Brevity, this beautiful soul. 

Box Score
My friend’s grandfather

is in hospice care,

off everything except the pain meds. 

He’s losing weight,

so his children bring him

a new leather belt.

“I’ll never get your money’s worth out of it,

what’s wrong with a hole drilled into the old belt,” 

he wants to know.

He makes it to the engagement party 

of one of the children’s children, 

where he reads the baseball stats

with great interest, 

breaking down

the wild card races.
