"Lying awake
after billiards
(pocket billiards),
having lost,
having lost
I attempt again the "break";

I neither make,
nor see it made
(nor try)
but hear it,
clearly,
and lie entranced

as,
moving, coming
off the cushions,
ceaselessly,
uncontrollably,
never dropping,
the balls await,
in motion
some miracle of will."
From Robert Sward's poem Cyclades

I like it!

Is Robert Sward related to CCB's own Jim Sward?

dunno....when I saw the Sward name here, I thought I remembered that sward was a hardness measurement, like Rockwell and Brinell....but couldn't remember what material it measured....coatings????
So I googled it...and......
The older I get, the less I register on any of those scales.....
