E and B


(Herol Graham, champion boxer)

This from a joint reading with another writer, Ross Wilson. We tried to contrast the two martial arts of boxing and karate.

Equilibrium and Balance

Herol Graham, Sugar Ray had it

Balance and strike, retreat unbroken.

Dance to a rhythm until the final blow.

All Senseis, Masters us do fail

Beyond the ropes, the dojo are people

Lost loves, vices, enemies that make Yahara

A Foreman, A Hopkins, A Duran greet fer mercy.

All arts, would make us better, more complete

Match inner worth to an outer equilibrium..

Still keep that guard up, stance ready

Body and soul tempered.


‘Are You ready’..(ichi,ni,san…)
