Elizabeth Alexander - Rally

by logan_d

The awesome weight of the world had not yet descended

upon his athlete's shoulders. I saw someone light but not feathered

jog up to the rickety stage like a jock off the court

played my game did my best

and the silent crowd listened and dreamed.

The children sat high on their parents' shoulders.

Then the crowd made noise that gathered and grew

until it was loud and was loud as the sea.

What it meant or would mean was not yet fixed

nor could be, though human beings ever tilt toward *we*.
