A play for matt and macklemore

Boy playing basketball with his father, talking about the things his going to go.
He cant get it in the basket
He tries ane tries again.
The ball bounces
Its a rhythm for a sing that just starting
Smiles and dreams swell to the size of universes
They break over suburbia like a sun
A laughing boy with a future
Dinner time
The ball is left.

The young man runs in and dunks the ball.
The whooops echoing like warchants
A victory in the stands.
Air jordans hit the pavement
Flying into the air
Dragons and wizards
The others run in
Charging like bulls
The ball bounces across the tar
Ring tone
The ball caught by the young man.
Watches cellphones come out
Flipped up like switch blades
Groans
Whoop
The girl
The picture
The game begins
The young man alone.
The ball goes up and down
The ball goes up and down.
The ball goes up.
The boy goes down.
The ball is left.

The man comes in
The ball comes to his hands
The words stumble out
I
I
I think youre the prettiest
Stupid
The ball ball goes up and comes down
I
The ball goes down
I
The ball ball goes down
I
The ball rolls
Have fun at prom
The ball is picked up
Ten more to college

Fuck
Rolls
The ball is left

The father comes in
Holds the ball.
Spins
Dribbles
Arcs the ball up
Bounce
Bounce
Cries
The man comes in with robes swishing like nets
Hey dad
I made it
The ball goes up
And up
And up
And down
Ill miss you.
Ill miss you too
Bounce
Arc
Swish
Bounce
Roll
Dinner?
The ball is left

The ball is
The man is
The young man is
The man is
The knife is
The ball is
Flat

The dad takes down the net
Takes down the net
Goes in
The man enters
Sits
Cries
Cries
Cries
The tears roll
Bounce
The ball is

The net is out up
The ball is taken out of the box
