Home of the Warriors

the garbage cans

look like

stupid robots


no personality

at all

in a ravine of dusty green


grass, big trees

and their roots

busting out of the ground


picnic

tables creating

loneliness


in that shade

and the sound of

basketball shoes


squawking against

asphalt

people are here


but not too many

of course

kids


playing

on all the day-glo equipment

even though the big


sign says

you know

don't


yellow

caution-tape and everything

little kids just


on the slide

and swings

pulling the tape off


throwing it

on the

ground


stomping on it

situated here

behind the firehouse


next to the old

high school

being rebuilt

the football

field and bleachers

and a great big sign


letting everybody

know

that this is


the home

of

the warriors
