’Punch’

Favorite

please convince me


that life h(old)s purpose


like a mouth holds words


or teeth


before a punch


I always stand


a(lone in the rain


finding the b(lush


and the cold rush


beautiful


yet I sit on benches


for times beyond


beyond two


thinking you’d remember


if I were Buddhist enough to you


and I may


may pick my battles


and weapons


still I cannot


always win


everything


even everything


I treat as war
