silent word

i know how to step aside
combatant flies past
slamming into a wall
as i turn to wait
in case of another assault
don’t punch don’t trip don’t swear
simply move and watch
granted sometimes you run out of corners
the walls scream
and your head turns stone cold
suck my toe shoes
proclivity itself holds still
with each piece marked and waiting
you must train young

because only the body remembers
a spin is a spin
always keep your eye on the prize
