Melt into the Stink

Furry monster man in an Everlast
sweatshirt, recalling
the boxing rings with corners
for death, drawing
Mohammed Ali,

“Float like a butterfly,
sting like a bee,”

into the stink
of the canvas,
knowing Everlast
is the opposite
of what the brand suggests.

    They never last. Father fought NYC PAL from 14 and then in WW 2 army. A middleweight. They kept him stateside for exhibition bouts in camps all over US. Lucky him. He did last. His unit had 95% casualties.

      The world is all about casualties.
