Fishing with the Famous #18
[Portage, September 4, 2009]

O Rei do Futebol, how would you catch trout?
I doubt you’d resort to opposable thumbs,
But bicycle your fly with a soft kick
Rolling your boot to create perfect drift
New translation of technical fishing
Floating your offering naturally
Over a feeding lane to tempt trout up
With visible wink of an open mouth
Using your foot to volley fish to net
Like a perfect dive from ten meters high,
Coordination the gift of your birth,
Not something we common schloops can purchase
Like a cheap black box off the Best Buy shelf.
Had you come along in another time,
Ability to defy gravity
Might have been adjudged Devilish sign
Gotten you burned at the public stake.
Instead you do ballet on verdant grass
Using skills to raise Brazils’ raucous cheers.
