There is no room for interpretation
When dealing with parents
talented 13-year-old soccer players.
Everything is bold and simple.
Play my kid and get team results.
The vigor and tension
With which this sentiment is communicated,
"Talk to the coach," I advise softly.
Each parent has their own imaginative eye
As eloquent as the other
It moves beyond
of their own
My boy is a natural this
A real that!
The composition of the team
Must inevitably emerge
as I see it.
It matters not
germination and growth
what the surrounding
fertility may have to
is limited to only what bears close affinity
to what is personally satisfying to them.
What an exposition,
of individualistic machinations.
