"On the poetic redemption of Tyrese Haliburton’s game-winner" Caitlin Cooper

when u look at ancient maps

where the land is unknown

it says "this way be dragons"

where a man is alone

this is a team sport

yet it comes down to u

a desire to evolve

into something that's new

so u have this last shot

to change everything past

and u take your redemption

so the future can last

your team jumps up cheering

and the fans all go wild

the reporters all clamor

but don't be beguiled

that map is still waiting

and redemption is smoke

u are the explorer

and we all want the quote

so smile clearly cat like

and nod in response

making all the unknown

become our renaissance
