I saw a woman who could’ve been

A girl with bobbed hair once

who spent her summers

on the coast of Maine

and went back to Choate

with a tan and hard muscles.

She had that nose and chin

she’d never lose,

and she’d send you

chasing the ball

all over the court

until you tasted the salt

of your own sweat

and wished you were

a better player.
