Sports Poems from Hoosier Poets
Landing in Lucas Oil Stadium
(Indiana Poet Laureate 2008-2010)
The homeless drift on capital streets
in a city that should have been
named Tecumseh, Indiana.
Politicians fill the statehouse
copper dome with hot air.
Jazz solos lift up toward
a full moon, circle around it,
and land in Lucas Oil Stadium.
Wes Montgomery and Etheridge Knight
busk as a duo on Indiana Avenue.
