Think of the opponents’ hands and feet as swords.
In a fishing village sometimes you are in an ebb
The violence this new student unleashed
Saw our high school wake up.
He showed as a cornered animal would
Rage tearing at any person near
Breath held while a paroxysm endured.
No opponent ready to cut
Can show what jagged cup
Was drank from inside and bleeds them.
Meeting such and other distempers-
A quiet leaving, politeness
Not a space of doubt, a hairline breath.
