Prompt from Poetic Bloomings: falling short, rising above

Kickoff punts adrenaline
through my living room
on Sunday afternoons-
now cheering, now hushed,
every moment a battle,
skill and determination
rush against fumbles and flails,
uniforms empty-handed in the dirt,
hopes prostrate on crumbling turf,
one team’s win intercepted
by that day’s rising champions.
