A morning mist, chilled phantom gray--earthen
Herbal fragrance, cleat-grass clumps, field aerated
Turf--warm up exercises wake banter.
In preparation for an all-day tourney, a canopy is
Raised on converted farmland turned athletic park.
Flavored electrolyte water, breakfast/lunch
Proteins, carbohydrate snacks--the recycled trash-
Talk brings in a strategic huddle.
A disc is propelled; opportunities are handled,
Cut to toss; turnovers are forced off the mark:
A flick of the wrist (backhand, forehand, hammer,
Huck); a secure pancake, a tumbling completion,
A layout skidding catch, a getting big snag.
The score points to play motivation: the team
Chorus, clapping hands, and stomping feet.
