Angelo shoots hoops
well past midnight.  

The thump-thump-thump
dulls his senses.  

He’s all alone on the court.  
He doesn’t have to think
about what’s going down at home.

Thump-thump-thump.

Angelo was lucky to have a distraction.

Yes dear Ida,

Able bodied boys are fortunate that way.

Those thumps echo right into my heart.

Thanks dear Linda,

I'm pleased this poem worked for you.

Yes, the thump-thump-thump does sound like a heart beating.  It's a sad thing for Angelo, being out there all alone.  He can’t go home.

Thanks XGarapanX,

Good for you.  Shooting hoops is a good thing to do.  It's a great distraction.

Shooting hoops is a good way for kids to survive in bad neighborhoods.
