Super Bowl Sex by Bradley Mason Hamlin

I think I
finally get it
why
people get so
passionate
obsessed
addicted
to watching sports
on TV

if you allow
yourself
to become
emotionally invested
in the gladiatorial
event
it’s
a lot like sex

anticipation
back and forth
tension
mounting
excitement
your heart pumping
desperately
wanting
sweating for
the best possible
outcome

or the
crushing
gambler’s high
and ultimate
let down
if it doesn’t work
out
as planned

like a poem
rejected
by
a
publisher.
