Best Poem of Douglas Kearney

Alameda Street

for Deshawn, Eric, Dallas, Jerome & Lerone
We brown boys
stick games,
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
for just
a minute.

We brown boys,
all knaps,
broken brims. Broken rims
from hungry slamdunks,
pro-ball pipe dreams
