Lament for the Yogi

September 22

Yankee Stadium
Night out with my dad. Yogi
Slammed a great home run.

September 22,
One year ago.
Awake in the night,
Strange thoughts:
Yogi’s so old now,
Likely to die soon.

Next morning,
I learned
he died in the night.

“Ain’t over till it’s over.”
Now it’s over.
Yogi Berra
Yankee Stadium.
