A Swing, A Miss, A Swing, A Hit

It comes down to this:
this one moment.
This one swing.

A hit
and the game is won.
A miss
and the game is something less than won.
The other thing.
Let’s not consider it.

Everything must go towards the hit.
would mean, well,
Moving in with in-laws.
Working for the bus company.
Put it out of your mind.

A miss is not to be considered.
There’s one chance left
to get it right.
The ball is heading your way.
It all comes down to this
