#16 - Bad Slice

'Don't tell me how to play golf,'
Wanda reprimands the strange, wild-eyed calisthenics instructor

who has wandered onto the green,
dispensing advice like vol au vents.

But she knows he is right.
This only stokes her ire. Her eye

ticks like a gnat's licking at her tear duct.
'And anyway, I don't see you

struggling under the weight of umpteen
pro-am trophies, Nick Faldo,' these last syllables

dripping with especial sardonic relish.
She wields her five iron righteously.

The man's vim drains like pus from a boil.
His eyes moisten; as he slopes away

he remembers to bend his legs.
