I Use To Play Basketball - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar
Do you play basketball?
Why do you ask? '
You live in Connecticut, right?
I've noticed from your writing,
There is a biting that defies description.
'What has that have to do with my ability to play basketball? '
Your eyes are penetrating.
As if you seek a challenge from me.
I use to play basketball.
In my much younger days.
If I had been prepared for a challenge to play games,
I would have brought along a blindfold.
That's how confident I am of winning.'
