Ode to Jason Collins

We all thought nothing could scare you
from seven feet high

you made it your job
to look invincible

while inside you
stood a ghost

your true self

a collision with despair
every night
waking you up
clanging his chains

and now you’ve turned
inside out

the ghost has not been set free
it’s better than that

there is no ghost anymore

only one imposing man
who will stand on the court again
and we will all stare at you
not thinking about what you are

but asking ourselves

how can we be more brave
how can we be more true.
