The Art of Playing

The Art of Playing


Larry, alone in the woods,

hunts his disk golf driver.

Before: certainty, each stroke,

nailing the chain.

Now: uncertainty,

hovering over the grass.

Human plastic.

The wind blows.

His body is a fallible thing.

What is drive anyway?

Just a man's hand reaching

in the day lit grass.
