2009: The Tallest Titan by David S. Pointer

The NFL's tough-
The Titans went with
a small back attack
because Chris Johnson
cuts like an Indian wars
era bayonet turning
up chronic pain lane
helping teammates heal
from the Steve McNair
grief bear on their
numbered backs..45,
50, 45, 40,....Chris
has burned on now
even VY's jumping again
and the crowd is juiced
on fan joy where opposing
players packaged in high
tech pro pads normally
thought to be preservative
pinball onto injured reserve
as the white and blue
vapor back shines in
those silvercloud cleats
keeping him safe and speedy
