THE END ZONE—a poem R, 8-31-17

This last day of summer is also the first day of football season, with ESPN’s Game Day crew in town to broadcast IU’s victory over Ohio State. It seems a logical day for this poem…

THE END ZONE—a poem      R, 8-31-17

It is a curse
to be good at everything
but not good enough
at anything
to receive a high five
from the best

who huddle close together
showing us their butts
as we who are but
good cock an ear

to catch a phrase
we might use
to call a play
at some far time
on a field of ragged grass

to gain the end zone
no one knows is there
