Off Topic: Today’s Verse 61

Can’t you see I’m stalling,
underneath the kale moon pie?
Whereupon my chalk-lined rafters,
quake at the thunderous sight
of your Olympian strides–

This water crashes,
this dealer hides in a bottle,
parading in the stains of hoop revelations,
a champion rises
to eat the dawn

what early light
that puddles in mid-court,
neon blue of mascot tumblers
another dozen too soon–

I beach you
on the side of Caribbean hues.
