More basketball

Posted by jlubans on May 02, 2010


While we are still out on the hardwood, here is a thumbnail of an original (10"x12") paper cut created for me by Beatrice Coron ( to go with my free verse from when I was writing about a women's basketball team:

Book Ends

Like an image on a Greek vase,

Beneath anachronistic bands of nets and balls
Two athletes lean back-to-back
Touching, sensing each others warmth,

Theyre sidelined on the scorers table,
Each a leg extended, ice calming
Stressed knee, ankle.

Symmetrically, in black on Athenian red, each turns to the court
Exhorting the practice players,
Adding their voices to the play.
