The Baltimore Field of Dreams

 

Playing a baseball game
Before an empty crowd is like
A jazz musician playing to
Shadows
In a club
Or a poet reading to himself
They are their own music
Making their own heaven
As a war rages on the city
Streets
A true artist doesn't Think
About the rewards or the
Affirmation or
Even the criticism
He doesn't even care if no one
Is looking
An artist just creates
The finished product is
Its own
Applause
