A Game of Basketball.

With the mighty sun’s rays,
penetrating the clear sky,
in an energetic mood, we decided
upon a game of basketball.

The game, its rules,
the team, their orders,
all set upon,
we began.

Shoot, fouls, steals, free throws!
the heat turned upon everyone’s mind,
and played as we did,
we ourselves ricocheted with the basketball.
And soon dear chaos,
tongued through the order,
a stable instability,
a familiar unfamiliarity.

And now as I stood aside,
I shuddered, quivered,
at the sight so grotesque,
so beautiful!
