She has no interest in pennant races
magic numbers or Closers

Baseball is not even on the list of
sports she will watch in person


She endures the broadcasts
my added commentary
three plus hours of cliches

Leaning against my back, or
sitting on the floor reading a book, or
half awake in bed

Because I want to listen.
because she wants to be close,
any game is better when she is within reach
