Comments about Douglas Kearney
for Deshawn, Eric, Dallas, Jerome & Lerone
We brown boys
like BIG D, EVIL E;
and conjure Knievel
with jigsawed dirt bikes
and sewer curbs
for asphalt launch pads.
We all sweat
to know flight
We brown boys,
broken brims. Broken rims
from hungry slamdunks,
pro-ball pipe dreams
