Football Elsewhere

“Football”
uttered in the US leads to quarterbacks and such
but elsewhere
it’s part of the fabric of society
a fixture in everyday life
visible to even my tourist’s eye in Morocco where I
heard no discussions but
saw evidence all around
ranging from a painted surface in a
beach town to
kids playing in front of an
abandoned hilltop mosque
overlooking a photogenic
blue city in a
valley to the ubiquitous
field of dust
of no lines
of spindly goalposts without nets
of civilization’s edge marked by man
between villages
in a dry riverbed
rushing past my car window so many times.
