Poetry A Tribute to Lewis Warsh

They Oughta Name a Shoe After You


You have Air Jordans


you have Curry 1s


Curry 2.5s


Curry 3 through 8s


why not one for Lewis


the Warsh 1


Lewis much like Curry


same ease


same grace


same generosity


same accuracy


same range


same power of changing the narrative


same perfect trajectory


same poetic arc


of dropping another


from downtown


same enlightened


golden state


warrior


Curry his shoulder shimmy


after scoring


Lewis his hand gesture
