I watch them play and I’m taken back in time

To the heat and smell of the sunbaked asphalt

of playgrounds and youthful competition that for all

of us marked the beginning of our careers, when there

was not a care in the world except the ball back-spinning

into the net and girls watching us from behind the net.
