Miss

Come up for the shot
Take it
Held breaths
Bead of sweat
Anxiety kicking in
Heart pounding
Hands tense
You coil
And spring
And let go
And for a moment, everything’s right
The ball whizzing through air
You look in anticipation
Held in a pose
The ball hits the backboard
Falls onto the rim
Spins
Spins
Spins…
Topples out onto the floor

No score
