Just the goal stands up!


“”Is football playing
Along the river-shore,
With lads to chase the leather,
Now I stand up no more?”

Ay, the ball is flying,
The lads play heart and soul;
The goal stands up, the keeper
Stands up to keep the goal. “

(A.E. Housman in A Shropshire lad, no. 27)

No more singing in the stadium


“Why — do they shut me out of Heaven?
Did I sing — too loud?
But — I can sing a little minor,
Timid as a bird.”

(E. Dickinson in Further poems of Emily Dickinson)

Smoking is allowed here

"The smoker smokes, through smoke
He indulges smoky speculations.

Which keeps his thinking among the smoke;
The smoker smokes, through smoke

For smoking pleases him greatly,
Insofar as it is his intention.

The smoker smokes, through smoke
He indulges smoky speculations."

(D. Wyatt in The smoker smokes)

“Ban on all water sports: under penalty of whores”


“completely different:
one’s expression when playing
or paying”

The battlefield is waiting for the fighters


“summer grass!
in the wake of dreams
of legion warriors”
