Penalty Shot

January 28, 2008
The ball, slammed,
stuck in the mud stricken
PK spot

The crowd, in unison
stands, waves, their arms,
chant, “Swan, Swan, Swan”

Joy fills Swan’s face, he turns,
pumps his fist to the gods.
The crowd’s shouts

arouse the stadium,
like a train approaching

Slow motion,
The ball floats towards the goal…
Wide right.
