I dreamed a dream of a team
that knew letters could be
“Me” can be spelled with “team.”
But these teammates never cared.
“Me” is in “team” but it’s not
about me, or you.
Try spelling “me” with that.
It’s us or we. Not me.
We were best friends.
Always together, even after practice.
And when people asked us, we said
with pride, “we’re best friends
and we run together.”
This “we” was a team with no “me.”
We shared secrets and intimate
Loving each other. Running together.
Too bad that team was just a dream.
