Soccer

The wet grass squishes
with every step I take while
the ball skids towards me
as fast as lightning.
I tap the ball forward.
A defender sprints up.

I roll the ball to the side,
and the defender
opens up his legs,
asking for the meg.
I pass it between them
and run around him
while he spins around
on his new skates.

I see my teammate
in the middle of the field.
I send the ball to him
for a quick one two.
Now the ball
Is back at my feet.

The goal opens up its wide mouth
preparing for me to shoot.
I plant my right foot
and let my left foot fly
sending the ball to the top right corner.

The goalie reaches up
stretching out his enormous arms
to stop the rocketing ball,
but the ball curves
just out of his reach.

Goal.
