A red-faced boy-man steps slowly from soccer to school.
Empty sunglass-shaded eyes stare at feet fording muddy football mire.
Hands in pocket words in throat nothing moves but legs carrying a drawn defected cell from a singular screaming mass of undefined undulating body mass.
Brown becomes green becomes gray becomes hollow footsteps echoing off red brick wall that opens to receive receding figure.
Under empty skies a crowd cheers on.
