Fighting Form

By the triumphant spirit
within

Flight is not
the choice

For fighting form dictates

Body,
held firm
not bouncing

Fists,
held high
not lagging

Knuckles,
loaded

Eyes,
locked

On that other guy
charging

It’s sparks, and
it’s sugar water

Focusing

The fighter is
a carburetor

Burning

Fuel repurposed from
sorrow, pain, and
longing
