The Grizzlies lost to the Bucks last night. They usually lose in Milwaukee–they haven’t won there since 2014–but last night’s version was especially frustrating, since they did it on the backs of lethargic, scattered play from Mike Conley and Marc Gasol, while wasting another very strong (to the tune of 27 points on 69% shooting) bench performance from Tyreke Evans.

Sometimes, prose isn’t up to the task of conveying the reality of human emotion. Sometimes the only appropriate vessel for the most intensely human experiences is poetry.


Conley is garbage
The fall leaves are turning red;
So is his shot chart.


The birds migrate south.
Marc Gasol against the East:
So does his effort.


A deer sprints through trees–
He cannot be stopped, nor slowed.
Tyreke in the lane.


The bench has stood tall.
The starters sleep as though bears
Hibernate early.


Marc and Mike are bad
Until they return to life
Fall will turn colder.
