Poem: Dogs and Big Black Guys

By: Antonio Prata

basketball


i 
played sports sometimes
like basketball
there were courts near the school
sometimes i played with big black guys
sometimes dad and i went to see the nets play
he let me drink a beer when they beat the suns
it was fun
one day the courts near the school were torn down
and turned into a dog-walking park
