backyard gretzkys


backyard gretzkys

in my 20-ft arena I’m
the great one, I’m
rocket roger
nolan ryan
ryne sandberg
rolled into one
catlike reflexes
I’m pat roy
patrick the king.
just watch what I do with
my fancy
glove hand;
trust me you’ve
never seen
moves like this—
it’s like I’m
like you read about, I’m
like you watch on tv.

(it sucks
when the tennis ball
bounces over the fence and you
have to climb into
mrs. heighley’s yard.)
