Squeaky Squeals of Shoes

 

 

Squeaky squeals of shoes

On determined moving feet

On polished wood floor

 

Long loose colorful

Shorts and shirts flow back and forth

Vigorously mixed

 

Legs running swiftly

Jumping dancing flailing arms

Hunting an orange ball

 

Shrill whistles bring peace

Ear-piercing buzzers announce

Changes of all sorts

 

Half-time quarters fouls

Black white stripes dribbling-bangs

Flapping-nets coach-yells

 

Encouraging cries

Sporadic bursts of applause

Long lulls for free-throws

 

Then more squeals of shoes

On determined moving feet

On polished wood floor
