MY ABUSIVE BASKETBALL COACH MADE ME A BETTER MAN

He taught me how to fix a jib
and tell a joke in French. And
let’s us not forget that day in Spring -
all the ‘i’s before ‘e’s - friend, believe, die
Those he taught, too - 
Seize, weird, vein - would wait for another day;
yesterday he said would be tomorrow; 
today brandished iron
in the form of a chair
hear it comes sailing
what I thought was me
was just me versus
 my open arms
