National Poetry Writing Month 2019 Day #10 (pt. 2)

My second poem for Day 10, follows Chris Jarmick’s POETRYisEVERYTHING prompt: ten lines about something which [sic] was, but now is not.

Sick’s Stadium, Seattle

The Pilots were there for their only season
I never saw them play
but I did see the Rainiers a couple of times
I almost saw Kurt Russell play once
but he didn’t start in the first game of the doubleheader
so I got bored and asked my dad if we could go home
I never went back again
though we drove past the place often
They tore it down my first year of high school
to put up a CX processing plant

(10 April 2019)


  1. and eventually Eagles Hardware (even though Chubby and Tubby’s was almost across the street) which became Lowes….. Good stuff. Write on!

    • There used to be a Pay-N-Save across the street; not sure whether or not there was also an Ernst. I did not like the CX plant being on the old Sick’s site, though; I didn’t think the quality of their photo processing was very good, and the building was mostly a plain white façade
