Home Field

At home you've got good positions to score:
table legs
door posts
columns in the hall shaped
like an open goal and the walls
an autographed album of balls
that have pierced the parents' defense.

מִגְרָשׁ בֵּיתִי

מִגְרָשׁ בֵּיתִי

בַּבַּיִת יֵשׁ לְךָ מַצָּבִים נוֹחִים לִבְעִיטָה:
קוֹרוֹת הַשֻּׁלְחָן
מַשְׁקוֹפֵי הַדְּלָתוֹת
עַמּוּדֵי הַמִּסְדְּרוֹן קוֹרְצִים
כִּשְׁעָרִים רֵיקִים וְהַקִּירוֹת
אַלְבּוֹם חֲתִימוֹת שֶׁל כַּדּוּרִים
שֶׁחָדְרוּ אֶת הֲגַנַּת הַהוֹרִים.
