I decided that I would write a poem every day for a year starting on my birthday, which was a week before the Super Bowl. I have written a poem every day so far on my creative writing tumblr, including one that was inspired by the outcome of the game:
And if it wasn’t planned
PED #9 2017
It’s how you planned it, wasn’t it?
You gave me five miles ahead
you somehow couldn’t keep up
But then when it mattered for the both of us
You sprinted forward like a young prince
chased by vixens and stable boys.
And then you overtook me,
left me in the dust
and I wondered if my success wasn’t deliberate
or you just got very lucky when I fell.
