Dad’s driver’s seat tutorial
about the basics of soccer
was interrupted by
kind words from the kid

his voice is too loud
enthusiasm overwhelming
would it be possible
to tone things down?

so when she scores
the first goal
of her life
he makes no sound

raising only his hands
up to the sky
while she looks back
for the celebration
