Stadium

by Andrew Hoyem

The super stadium sustains all games.
Planted, planked, padded, paved, painted,
Territories to be won and winnings counted.

The stadt is a city, and the city has a place
Where the populace gathers to witness
Winnings and losses each by each.

The larger world is a small stadium
Devoted to demonstrating how the universe
Works by chance, by determination.

By intelligent design do we know disarray,
The way things fall apart, how we dis
Remember the important things.

Stupidly, we see and hear and say
What needs to be said, heard, seen,
While we still can, not when not.
