Sideline Poetry- Poems pieced together out of overheard conversations during children's soccer games.

Practice Field, April 16, 2015, or, Pelťís Sister

You call that a settle
Settle the ball, Blake
Right in front of you

We donít kick like that, Blake
Blake, we donít kick with our toes, do we
Blake, no toe bombs

Nice cross, Grace
Gracie, way to hustle
Blake, watch Grace
