haiku retrospective ccxcvii

Back when the Giants were at foggy, windy Candlestick Park, they awarded the Croix de Candlestick to those fans intrepid enough to sit out an extra inning game. I loved Candlestick, even on foggy, windy nights. I loved the way the flag in left field flapped in a different direction from the flag in right field. I loved the way the fog swirled across the field.

fingers numb with cold
he pins another medal
