     :Bowled Over:

Nate Pritts

My friends & I enjoy competitive games.
For example: bowling. For example:

bird watching. Just mention any activity
in which you could declare someone a winner

& my friends & I will line up like pins
at the end of a long slick alley. My friend

in blue tries to see only blue birds, turning a blind eye
on birds of any other color. His bird watching totals

are staggeringly low. My friend in red counts
anything he sees in the sky as a bird: airplanes,

dandelion pollen, clouds.
