all ages, all genders, all comers kickball

we brought

the shades

the kids

the headbands

the colors

the kicks

the neighbors

the knee socks

the diapers

the power

can’t touch this

time for a rematch

bring it

the playing adult steps sideward into another reality;

the playing child advances forward to new stages of mastery.
