we all play
well, most of us

we assemble on a patch of
shit-hot concrete
stretch lumpy muscles
lace up tight our shoestrings
tell stupid jokes
rub our sweaty hands dry

then we
go through the ritual of
practicing our shots
over and over and over again
until it's time to
shoot for teams
a process that takes
way longer than it should

we get ready
we get set
we go

the first game begins
and it's absolute madness

there's very little flow
very little coordination
very little chemistry
very little actual skill
but it's always fun
even with the bad passes
ball hogs
missed shots
lack of defense
and freak ankle injuries

we play for hours and
act like we're as good as
the dudes playing on
the other courts

(dudes who could
probably play college ball)

and we're not
and we mostly know that
but it doesn't matter cuz hey
we work our asses off
for those 15 points it takes
to win the fucking game!
