Ya Gotta Believe

If my prediction is to come true (see post below), the NY Mets need to start getting W's tonight. As for Yoenis, he needs to live up to his nickname La Potencia.
In general, I hope young Syndergaard can hold his own versus these KC brutes and thus avoid the headlines that tabloid editors are just waiting to splash on their backpage:

Let's Go Mets!

"Ya gotta believe." Tug McGraw said it and fans of the New York Metropolitans have taken it to heart ever since.
This year the Orange and Blue have a starting rotation of young arms that makes fans truly believe the world championship is attainable.
The starting pitching is reminiscent of the last time the Mets won a World Series: 1986. And if you remember that back-in-the-day drama v. Boston, I'm sure you're getting ready for a wild ride.
Prediction: Mets win in 6. Cespedes is MVP.
Good luck all.

Perfect World

In a perfect world,
my feet 
would not hang
over the edge 
of the bed
like the head 
of a man
in the guillotine,
my toes 
pointing downward
like his face 
to outrace 
the blade
into the basket.

Perfect World 2

By day
guillotines slice
at the speed
of inertia.
With the grace
of gravity,
heads thud
into baskets.

At night,
the blades rest
above splintered grooves,
edges intact.
