Wiz v Trailblazers

It starts with a look:

You wanna go down now?

45 minutes before the whistle?!

Hell. Yes.


We scan the court –

there they are: Buck and Phil!

You stand and wave;

we’re clad in their old cornflower blue.


Buck sees us, taps Phil

to get his attention too.

I’m catapulted back

to that final game, sans you.


Alone, on her couch, their proclamation:

National announcers for the rest

of the playoff games.


I bawl and I bawl and I bawl.

Another thing to let go of –

their leather voices calling

passes and daggers!
