Hoops

Every kid
in the neighborhood
is out
on the basketball court

Idyllic as hell
dribbling
hanging in clusters
under after-school sun

How’s it decided
who plays
and who hangs back
unlikely there’s a lottery
drawing straws seems dated

With a crack
from the god of thunder
everyone scatters
leaving one scrappy team
wet
shooting hoops

Flash 55 for Real Toads Day Number Three!
