End Game

You
……………………go long
puzzle out how to
keep this marble
…………..spinning
or how to breathe your best
last.

Me,
I think I’m gonna
sit here with my turquoise pen
………………………….take it all in
leave something new
behind
to burn
when it all goes
………………………………………. kaboom.

  1. Brilliance!!!! Love what you do…but YOU know that!!! Ha ha!!

    “take it all in

    What a perfect weaving of football elements. A guy would be watching football while the girl is writing it all down. ;)

    This is great:
    “leave something new
    behind
    to burn”

    I like how you depict the differences between the two – one analyzing, the other doing.

  5. “leave something new
    behind
    to burn
    when it all goes
    kaboom.”

    I love that this is fatalistic and optimistic at the same time. It made me wonder what I would do, which way I’d react. Or would I have a completely different response to the end of the world? I wanted to point out a favorite line or two, but seriously, the whole thing is just beautiful.

    I’m not usually good at poetry, but this is fantastic. I like the idea of wanting to leave a little something behind.
