Gamesmanship

The moon cupped a star
in the cradle of its glow
like someone playing jai alai in the sky
the goal's just so far
we'll never really know
if we've won, though we dubiously try.

A fan of concision, I am struck by this poem. The depth is hidden in brevity. Clever and calculated and written with skill.
