E- Earth #atozchallenge (a poem for small steps)

The shading off a crumpled can
mustn't puncture the laziest of us
to cover among our
orange peels, bitter and bright
or half a meatball
tiny tummies couldn't but

if all that is chosen
for performance
is the branded aluminum sweetness
or but one box
that bounced from Kentucky
to DC to New York
connecting the dots
of the gloved and uniformed
if only one is put on stage 
this week 
he scored better than last

We can applaud
not that you
hugged upon the trees 
of your neighbors,
a standard immune to ridicule,
but that this week
you did better than
