because we love college ball...

The Sweetest Roll

Drive draw and dish.
Can turn
nothing
into a swish
as I resist temptation
to let one
pop
from the top
of the key.
Could be worth
three,
but only if I make it.
Fake it
then
take it
strong
to the hOle
with soul
looking to finish
with
a finger roll.
To the left
to the right
earthbound legs take flight
ready
to excite the crowd
into a frenzy.
Victory---
could be---
if my finger roll can clear the trees.
As I rise high
to the sky
I let fly
my
all
with the ball
as the buzzer sounds
and the swish



falls.
