Heavy Bag~by Paul F. Lenzi


 

 

Heavy Bag

punching-bag

Surrealist Image by Boxing HD Wallpapers

inane hateful diatribes
building up anger
aggression pulls taut
at the tendons
contractions of muscle
under politic skin
tensions twisting
prominent ropes
pulsing cords of the neck
bitter excess of bile
backs up into the brain

don the gloves
twenty ounces
of righteous red fists
beat the bag where it hangs
opposition in effigy
punishing blows
giving private release
better here all alone
in the basement
than up there among
all that impolite company
