The unreachable
At 5’11’’ conventional wisdom
would deem me far too short
(Five inches in fact)
to feel the earth-shattering satisfaction
of a good ol’ slam dunk.
And while my stature may keep
that satisfaction from me
and keep that dunk forever
out of reach,
it’s ok.
Because if you want to dunk
on MY court,
you’ve gotta outrun me
and keep that ball long enough
before I steal it.
