(punchbag) ~ SJ Fowler



the act of impotence
to spray a thousand stings
in return
the inanimate swings
indifference returns
to spill a thousand punches
on the crown of real people
in do doing, to produce
and exact
the fine line between
     digging in earth
               or water


from Fights IV Antonio Margarito (the arthur shilling press, 2010)

Great short poem with a thought provoking ending.
