Magdalena Ball #11: Restless Feet

Restless Feet

restless feet
hard as astroturf
a synecdoche

fragile as joy
in young bodies

ricochets off the walls
streams of sweat
connecting as a high five goal

it’s true this sinewy pleasure
evaded me
cloistered and day-dreamy
a bookish, strange child
talking to myself
watching life
from a high rise window

clear enough
from a safe distance
time and space on my side

this is more than a game

it’s a collective language
created by the grammar
of ball, whistle
and movement.
