Andrew Hubbard recently moved back to Indiana after ten years in Houston, Texas. He has had five books published, including, most recently, his first book of poetry, "Things That Get You," which was produced by Interactive Press. He was nominated for the Pushcart Prize in 2015.
Who can resist those bright
With indefatigable pitchmen
And plush bear prizes?
The milk bottles never fall over
The dart never hits the balloon
The softball rolls out of the basket
You know you can’t win
But you play the game anyway.
It’s a lot like love.
