Not unlike his high school baseball career

During which he surely stood, gasping for air,

Just after winning states.

Lungs straining in his hospice bed,

I remind myself of his football team,

For which he must have crossed some finish line,

His celebration marked by this –

The battle for air, a sign of victory.
