Football Practice

As I waited to pick my sister Shelly up from soccer today I watched the high school football team practice, and was inspired to write this poem.

Dirt smeared jerseys the color of piss
stretch over bowling ball deltoids.
Chunky legs are packed tight into grass-stained leggings.
Let the putrid mass of sweat 
and physical colliding of bodies begin!
