We Won 2-1

To live is so startling it leaves little time for anything else. -Emily Dickinson

While Dominick defends the goal down field, his Northwest University teammates are on the move.


I went to a soccer game

At an unfamiliar college

To cheer on the goal-keeper

A 21-year-old student from Jamaica

Whom I met a month ago

And have since come to know and love like a son.

As I sat under the blue skies of this perfect autumn day, watching Dominick make his leaps and catches and deflections to help win the game, you better believe that I was pinching myself. Because never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine that life could be so full of mysteriously sweet surprises.
