ask a butterfly.
sports are nice – when they’re shown live, or seen live, or participated in by me
are the olympics the best example of sports?
ask the underdogs.
many of whom never make it on tv.
tears are cool
especially when theyre streaming down a cheek of a winner
as their national anthem is played to a mostly full arena.
but super especially when they fall
in a gym in the middle of nowhere
or a track on the outskirts
or in a pool or a court or a field or a street
when no ones looking
because someone did something they couldnt do yesterday
and now theyre one step closer to their dream.
and still the butterfly flutters away saying
cant do this
