The Rematch

By Adam J.


Thunder, rain, lightning, it

Stops.  Birds chirping.  Just climbed

A mountain in Missoula, Montana

And I was drinking something

The cool liquid running down my throat

Then Bang Boom Bam, thunder

In the distance I decide

To play air hockey  with my cousin. Click

Clank clunkólike a golf ball into a hole

I won.  He said I should

Wait to play him in  real

Hockey, next winter.  Then

He asked me for a  rematch.

Click clank clunk, rematch.

This one lasts longer

Click clank click click

Click clunk, he wins.

Then we leave to the hotel, but we

Will be back tomorrow

For a rematch.
