Day 25: Everyone Loves a Good Fight



Everyone Loves a Good Fight

Take the swing, feel its
velocity, rush of breath,

impact of knuckles against
flesh.  Spittle flys, teeth gnash,

jaw zigzags a crooked
path.  Years later you recall

their wrath, again you're
down, slowmotion bounce

and tumble across playyard--
redcoats, horses, everyone.
