the killer and the prey

October 18, 2008
By melanie maier, Holly, MI

the killer sliding in my sweat filed hands
here comes the prey lost and lonely
cold and dirty
mud stained and filled with nothingness
i know i can and will
all my focus
my gut
me
all right there with power
energy everything all right there
and all so suddenly gone
i see the poor
defenselessness
of a lonely pedal
lost and gone
but now what
i feel relieved
but what about the ball
how does the ball feel?
