Gridirons gleam like sun drenched jewels
Emeralds
With a stadium setting


Gems dotting a landscape otherwise torn
With poverty, abuse, unemployment


Coins are tossed across the nation
Seas of fans rise in waves
Fathomless ocean of lapis lazuli peers overhead


For a frozen moment
The beauty
The struggle
The sweat
The drama
Elevates the spirit


Titans locked in mortal combat
Heroes battling fate
Destiny unfolding beneath empyrean eye
Gravity defied


But, alas,
Earth wins
Final horn sounds
Fantasy fades
All is grounded


Later, exodus complete,
Some fast asleep,
Awakens the question unrequited:
Are we bejeweled
Or benighted?
