The Poetic Game by Michael E. Quigg - combining soccer and poetry

I grew up

surrounded

by Brazilians,

Guatemalans,

Mexicans,

&

assorted Europeans

 

Soccer,

 

as you might guess,

was a frequent topic of conversation

I didn't really understand any of it,

I was too young.

I just loved that ball.

I loved having something

that I understood

even then

to be a part

of every person around me

This was my proof

that I was indeed human,

that I shared

 

something

 

with the people around me.

We shared this,

 

all of us.
