You’ve now named your demons
You now stare them down with no small trepidation
but you do it
You now find that doing so on a daily basis is not so daunting as it once was
You play a mean offensive against them everyday
and you keep score like I ask you to

It is quite possible you have gotten better with my help

My jump shot has improved
Alley-ooping is now something I’m happy to do for you
And even when I miss
You just seem content that I’m there to listen
to whatever random Larry Bird trivia
(How many other 14 year olds do this?)
that enters your beautiful brilliant anxious brain
It is quite likely that I have gotten much better with your help
