Against The Str8

by Reign

It was hot today
at the park,
where the fence rises above
the imagination.
I watched
boys and girls play
in an enclosed yard.
A child dribbled
through two defenders,
jellying and jiving,
practicing his patented crossover,
before taking an almost impossible shot
to the screams and hand waving
of friends and teammates
underneath the basket.
The shot goes in
and we lose.
