David Hitchcock
Poet
Although I'm often inspired by the interplay of sound and thought, I also write about my own experiences and try to put into words memories that will resonate with others. In these poems, I want people to say, "Yes, I remember that feeling."

I also think a little humor can open them to thoughts that they may not have had otherwise. So here the poem opens with a little humor, two puns in four words. Then it becomes slightly nostalgic, remembering summer as a child, and how fast it goes, and how baseball games ands swimming can remind us of that time. There's all that in just three little lines.

Chiefly close to home,
catching fast flying summer
in a baseball mitt.
