At the Game

My son and I went to the Texas-OSU football game together in Austin last season. It was so much fun being there with him – and the win was incredible! But watching the crowd being whipped into a frenzy at regular intervals by the music was so intense that I tried to encapsulate the feeling in words as soon as we got home…

 a thronging 
bass-thumping
build-up is
built up and
concentrically discharged
as a controlled 
frenetic wave in
the concave 
animal hive
humming
swaying and
holler-moaning as
beats pound through 
hearts pumping in
the entranced and
sweat-soaked acolytes
at the game
