chris history


Saw Michael Jordan on cable the other day
He looked old and slow,
It looked as if only his hands were left with greatness
‘The Touch’

The rest of his body was Novocain
What is he… 50?
But he his out there not accepting it, like a wildebeest brought down by a lion
Fighting as if
When he should just go to sleep

Do you remember 1986?
When he came on the court like Jesus walking on water
And the other players weren’t even there to play
They just wanted to witness it
To watch his body move
His legs
His shoulders
His hands

Like God

And now he is out there
On cable

Dying with the rest of our childhood heroes
