The Boxer


How does it feel to be broken jawed
on the canvas striped man counting
no deal here my friend
you’re down and rubber legged.
Another man punched the shit out of you
nothing left to do but crawl off the ring
into the arms of those left.
Fighting with blood in your mind
is a lost approach to the game.
