Blood Knee - April 15, 2022

play pickleball

with a fearless

ten-year old

and you’ll see

there’s nothing

he can’t reach

or burn some skin

with the effort


he dives and swings

as the ball climbs

over the net

passed stunned opponents

and into the backcourt

for a point


Wow Gary I hear

while I notice

the sting of a bloody knee

still never lingers

in the sweet taste

of a great shot
