My Football Debut

#TeamDurhamthe ball is in the air
the ball is too close to renounce
i run and jump
someone jumps into my face
my nose gives two rude clicks
i turn and walk away
i put my hand to my nose and it comes away red
i look down and drop bright spots
give us a sec ref
no one hears me
i stride off the pitch like a man dealing with a situation
i open the first aid box
i cover everything in blood
where are the wipes
blankets, plasters, tweezers
i stuff a bandage up my nose
after a few minutes i walk back onto the pitch
ref
no one hears me
ref
could i have a bit more protection next time
so that doesnt happen again
he chuckles fatly
that was just a coming together
