Are You Ready For Some Football?

The Dallas Cowboys

You were changing your tampon in the stands
as the Wave was going by us.
Dallas Cowboys kicking Redskin asses.

The Goodyear Blimp flew overhead
like the rail-splitter,
a bullet in his stove pipe hat.

Walt was trying to live up to his reputation.
Leaf after leaf after leaf,
ad nauseam.

The running back broke away,
the cheerleaders opened wide,
binoculars focused on the cracks.

Cheering and yelling
I looked over at you,
you had blood on your hands.
