Final Third

> Attack! Attack attack attack!!
< Out! Steady! Keep them out!!

> We spring in transition, driving forward
riding the surging sick adrenalin
staying calm and focused in the frenzy

< We defend, concentrating on position
fighting the curled knots of dread
thinking clearly under pressure

> Reaching for the heights of aspiration
we use vision speed and movement bending time
and stretching tired limbs to force mistakes

< We have anticipation timing interception
with cynics who’ll take one for the team
and make the hardened crunching tackles

> They may measure us by metrics
but we are only sated by a score
< We are completed by its absence:
a nothing makes us whole
