Football and English Majoring
aren’t so different.

Writing and sport at
the heart are about the kill.
The final paragraph
is a touchdown.

The spring training
like early term work,
and the drills are exams,
practice, rough draft
and research, the study
of other games, kept in
binders,
folios,

and then Victory,
followed by celebration,
followed by more hard work.

I can see where you
were coming from, Jack,
and I can see why you left.
