To Coach

(On the occasion of Henry Harutunian’s 40th anniversary of coaching at Yale)

Balanced at the end of strip
Out of room
Out of breath
Grasping for solutions

Coming from behind
Summoning my courage
Creativity and

Comforting myself, vowing to do
Better, Try
Harder and yet
Not beat myself up

Your voice
I hear
Cheering from the side

I owe you more than ever I can pay, and so I simply give
My thanks, and love
