Your Serve

a poem

“Your serve”, chimed the Wii
which is ironic to say,
because I inputted all four Miis
into the four opposing sides.

Is this not a metaphor for life?
It has always been my serve,
Against myself,
The tired, unwilling, snug-under-covers me,
serving that ball over the court to
ambitious, studious, productive me.
