Just a Game by Marty McCahill

The slug shrivels with the arrival of salt
I am God to the insects

The street lights are on
Time to go home
To rest our heads
With the things we have done

One o’clock, two o’clock’, three o’clock rock
In the pine, sweating and bleeding
Four o’clock, five o’clock’, six o’clock rock
I’m the ghost, I sit here waiting
Seven o’clock, eight o’clock, nine o’clock rock
My siblings have no idea what’s coming
Ten o’clock, eleven o’clock, midnight!
Madness ensues, pale white streak of kids
Of youth
A girl will shriek
A boy will be scared
Its too dark to be out and playing this late
The day was long; I rode my bike
Up into the woods again
Just don’t tell mom
I’m gathering wood for the fort I am building
Deep in the woods
So I can hide there in winter
Just like a squirrel
I’m always getting ready
For that thing that’s still coming,
Where are we going?


A mad dash back to the place
Where everything happens
And nothing is captured.

    Once again, excellent stuff. Thanks Coach!Of cosrue, I gotta be the guy with the questions If you’re doing all the exercises back to back, is this what it would look like:- Warm ups (30 secs in all directions)- 3 Pulling preps (30 secs rest btwn each)- 3 Reverse Pulls (30 secs rest btwn each)- 3 1/2 Pulls (30 secs rest btwn each)Cool Downs (30-60 secs each)Then you do each exercise X times a day & X days a week, depending on what week you’re on.Does that sound right?Do you have to do Warm Up/Cool Down every time you do your pulls, or just the the very 1st time & last time you do the pulls?Thanks again,Hugo
