Groundwork - Baltimore Post-ExaminerBaltimore Post-Examiner

Groundwork

my back flat to this mat

every vertebra tense,

and hastened.

hands enclose around my neck

and for some reason,

I think of childhood

and become angry.

I snap my hands

and my opponent sails –

surprised.

 

I sit up,

a smile on my face.
