ex tempore

Temporary - Amsterdam 2010

once upon a time
i hit
that game-winning single
that game-winning jumper
that game-winning game winner
in front of the crowd or
in front of nobody.

what was i wearing?
what was i hearing?
who were those people?
that made me do that very thing
that you ask of me yet wonder how it is i did
that very thing in the first place.

it might define you,
that game-winning game winner,
one fair moment in the
noble archive we play.

but i have already forgotten it,
that game-winning game winner,
just like the river you
can never step in twice.

two times, or maybe more, i made
that game-winning game winner,
though i know to this day
that it never made me.
