Mixed Martial Arts Cage Fighting (for Matey Tristram) by Paul Tristram

It’s not unsettling losing,
it’s the winning suddenly.
Staggering back into focus
with demolition in every part of you.
And they finally crack,
right down the middle.
They can’t see it yet
only feel it.
But you are outlasting
the horizon.
So they fall,
every finger and toe, motherfucker!
I don’t know you from Adam
but you raped the universe,
Kennedy died because of you,
Hitler looks just like you
and my daughter told me
in her sweet, angelic voice
“Don’t you dare lose, daddy!”
