Sweet Stuff (And That Feels Good)

Perhaps you don't like football.
Perhaps you don't understand why a poet might like football.
Perhaps a poet doesn't even understand why he is attached to a certain football team.
But a major factor in the world is proximity.
Other things in the world include mental illness and strange thoughts.
I've thought things before.
Other things in the world include childhood dreams and broken legs.
There's other stuff too.
All of it crapola. Still--
in the state of Indiana, I'm thinking of the Colts.
I'm like, seriously, take those equine thoughts to the Superbowl.
I'm a better human being tonight than I was last night.
