Fast Learners

We caddies didn’t look like much 
in our hung out to dry jeans and t-shirts, 

but we were hired by
some of Seattle’s finest citizens—

the two buck fee and dollar tip, made three.

At first we were mere mules,
shouldering a heavy load, 

or silent statues eyeing
the unruly flight of the ball,

but soon enough 
they taught us

most of what gentlemen need to know— 

how to throw 			                 clubs,
spit, 
cuss, 
fudge the	      ball	    with our foot, 

and pee 

behind 
trees.
