hello, my name is
beaten
(teacher, teacher, call roll
last names only, please)
shoes kicked off to dance floor edges
one sock black
one sock grey
sub-basement floor to ceiling mirrors
line far wall
(and bare pipes line concrete hallway
ceiling. to clint: that is a natural gas pipe.
we are the canaries.
)
we face the mirrors.
right jab, left jab, hook, knee.
block. block. hands up, forearms pressed together.
box block. hook. step, pivot, roundhouse.
focus on the motion
do not focus on the thing
you are insuring against
pair up. practice hold escapes
(teacher, teacher, call roll
last names only, please)
he demonstrated the
'domestic violence choke'
(aside, to me: what a terrible name)
focus on the motion
do not focus on what
you are insuring against
box block. twist. palm strike.
try not to flinch
when your classmate's cool hands
touch your neck

box block. twist.

roundhouse.
