Back and forth buzzes the ball

a fuzzy green fly, swatted away

it flies angrily towards me

my strokes are 

short

wooden

 

my feet are the hands of a conductor demanding vibrato

my eyes search for the right time to swing

my wrist locks

my racket jerks forward

 

the green fly arcs into the spiders lair

 

love-15

 

my eyes comb the crowd frantically 

like bedhead before school

but there I see you

 

I breathe

I watch

I swing

 

15 all.
