The Player

They run
And they run
And they run.
Gas tanks for lungs.

Supporters
Who earn less
And are mainly
Anonymous
And
Androgynous
Wave brightly
Coloured
Flags
Like new
Enthusiasts.
They cheer
From on top
Of their tanks.

He trips up,
He falls,
Brushes himself
Down as if
Nothing
At all,
Takes a step
And somehow scores.
