My Game Plan

By
Standing here, on this bright blue court
Adidas sneakers and Nike tennis outfit
White net in-between me and my competitor
Wilson racket in one hand, a neon green ball in the other
The palms of my hands begin to sweat
I’m in the lead 5-1
I serve the ball, ace!
I’m up 15-0
I serve the next ball, another ace
I’m up 30-0
I serve again, she hits it back
I hit a smooth backhand cross court, my point
It is game point; you can do it, one more!
Butterflies in my stomach
I toss the ball, and smack it as hard as I can
ACE!
