The Way It Is

The Bronx began cold and rainy and the Stadium was bare.

“It’s a lousy start to the day,” said Jackson from Gerard Avenue.

The sun came out just after breakfast, but the Stadium remained bare.

“It’s still not a great day,” Jackson said. “It’s not the worst, but it’s certainly not great.”

And there’s no change in sight.

“Baseball means a lot around here,” Jackson said. “There’s always gonna be clouds hanging around if they’re not playing.

“That’s just the way it is.”

I guess that is just the way we all have to feel for a while.

Baseball will be back in the Bronx before you know it! Chin up everyone.
