Intercollegiate Athletic Guide

The Rugby Player

And here is another name, a football name
something else like a tough nickname
a brown suit and slender tie

The Coxswain

Boats are quoted and ships italicized

The Golfer

Fair Isle sweaters and pea coats are function
not fashion again

The Lacrosse Player

No, never mind him
Ben Sherman jackets match Fred Perry shoes
Mohawks and leather on the other side

The Ballplayer

or a film about him
or the poster outside the theater

The Swimmer

Seen here in the convex mirror
around the corner

The Fencer

Stage combat certification
looks good on a resume

The Wrestler

With another name, wear a tuxedo
or a linen shirt and summer shoes
Here, center ring, stained glass
