Member Of The Team

If he were more

Given to introspection

He might have recognized it

As it happened

It was in the shower after practice

When the water washed away

Not just sweat

And the soreness

From the crushing drills

But his very essence

His lonely self


It was when

He looked around the room

Hot water running from his eyes

That he transformed

Or was transformed

Into more than self

More than friend

More than brother
