A cooling behind benched
by Lawrence S. Pertillar
On a sideline seat.
Retreating from a game
In a drenched uniform and cleats.
With thoughts of additional strategies to play,
On this day that guarantees a win and defeat.
With an appetite to kick some ass...
Missing balls long stalled and overpassed,
And wishing to satisfy a taste with licks dripping!
In such a scrumptious heat!
