The Village Hall Players

Three empty tables -
without decorations -
set equal - spaced
with sweated men
at squared-up ends -

They are quick to each
shot with fenced returns
off slightly comical bats -
facing up to their other -
posed low in a mirror -

with backhand - forehand
and wrist flicks of a ball -
that metronome tick . . .
