Something amazing, a boy falling out of the sky

As Bad as a Mile, by Philip Larkin

As Bad as a Mile

Watching the shied core

Striking the basket, skidding across the floor,
Shows less and less of luck, and more and more

Of failure spreading back up the arm
Earlier and earlier, the unraised hand calm,
The apple unbitten in the palm.
