NFL Football

by Louise Yeiser

Men sipping from water bottles, men with bare arms in freezing weather, men on their knees, men with tinted football helmets that make them look like Darth Vader. Men on benches, men in piles, men in lines, men blocking like brick walls. Men bending over, running, jumping, flying, and throwing, catching, hurling, wrestling one another to the ground. Slapping each other’s butts, smacking chests, patting helmets. Banal ballet, coarse choreography. Watching all the pretty men.
