challenge

a dead net cord

is an affront

to his soul,

he stands

indignant,

as nakedly

crestfallen

as a child denied,

this bewitching blend

of petulant and

incandescent.

he blows

hot and cold

with fortune’s

favour,

his talent

a given,

a ticket

to glory,

his rise

breathtaking,

meteoric.

he blazes

a trail

and scatters

opponents,

shattered and

shellshocked,

like so much

tumbled debris

in his fiery wake.

Elemental‘ is the first in a trilogy of poems about Sascha Zverev. The second is ‘Adolescent‘ and the third ‘Disarmed‘.
