White girls can write poetry.

For Shaquille 
Where does a poem come from? I write something bad on a piece of paper, I crumple the piece of paper up, I slam-dunk the paper into the trash. I sink deeper into myself and think. 
The dunk is conceptually exciting. The word itself like the sound of the thing! I'm surprised all poems aren't called “The Dunk”— then everyone would have to be impressed by them. If a poem is called “The Dunk” then very certainly it is one.
The link is to the article about the poem. The link to the poem is at the end of the article.

I have executed the perfect pass: you weren't there when I started it, but you and the ball arrived in exactly the right spot at exactly the right time. That's court vision. It's up to you now to be Malone to my Stockton ... and finish.
