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


Curry his shoulder shimmy

after scoring

Lewis his hand gesture
