my basketball game

the audience of
geese honk loud
when i sink one.
some of their
booby trap turds
end up smushed on
the ball when
i miss.
that’s defense.
western mountains
are the edge of
the arena and the sky
is like a dome.
i dribble past
invisible double teams
and spin like
chris paul before
dropping a tony
parker tear-drop.
i take it out into
and put up
my best larry
legend j.

‘that weird looking white guy
is out there again.’

‘do you think he realizes
how bad he sucks?’

marv albert says,
‘YES!’ in my brain.
