Missed Shot

Playing pool in the basement late at night,
Alone, and I win every game.
Any missed shot and it’s still my turn,
“Great shot Brent, go again”.
Angles, momentum, spin and rebound,
Thinking a little ahead.
Chuckling as things go exactly as planned,
But then conversations come back in my head.

[Hata Bildir]
