Tournament Time

Tournament Time

The ball travels
 from hand to floor
        hand to floor
         hand to floor.
The rhythm as steady
as the clock ticking down.

Suddenly, the thumping stops.
The player takes the shot.
Will it be a swish?
Kiss the backboard and drop in?
Clang! It ricochets off the rim.

Game over.
Another team gets bounced.
