  • Sitting in the bleachers.
    As the time passes my hands, arms, feet and legs vibrate with more and more ferocity.
    With each call my heart leaps with excitement,
    and by now I can barely hold back the faucet behind my eyes.

    These next few words words will justify this year of my life.
