She’s a runner.
A dancer leaping across the muddy fields.
Her face glistens in the warm sunlight
Dribbling the ball, she passes

By girl,

By girl.

A quick pass to her teammate,
And the ball is at her feet once again.
Heading towards the goal
She takes the shot…

Slowly her legs are gone from under her
Her arms disappear
Hear head and body round,
Black, and white

She flies through the air like a bird on its first flight,
She begins her decent
The mouths of passerby’s drop.
Her left side skimming the fingertips of the keeper.
Her body curving in the wind
She hits the net
