JCC Floor Hockey


Juranka's Corner

May 29, 2006 (post-mortem)

another year of obsessive
ball hockey mania is over

the final curtains have closed

the eerie chaos of
free monday evenings begins

the alarm clock rings
and the hoser's dream
vanishes into the morning
of summer like a funeral
for the great teams of 2005/6
fading into JCC hockey
history and folklore

its all a memory and
quicky fading as though
other fantasies now have
greater claim

the sound of the whiffle ball
and the glory of
a beautiful sport,
a beautiful shot,
a beautiful save,
a beautiful goal or
a beautiful girlfriend

the beauty lingers
but the details melt
full of energy
but disappearing
like a romantic breakup
yeah we were team-mates
now we're "just friends"
