Of weeds and wheat and smoke and fire

The Gronk has a punctured lung

maybe

the paper says

and you can still see the hit

the one-two

and still feel how

you were glad for it

after what he did to us

two years ago

catching that pass.

What Christ thinks of football I don’t want to know,

but I can see his eye

and hear his breath,

and I’d best be off

before I think some more.
