Click. The cage shuts. Now, you’re locked on your target.

He has the same starved look; one could ascertain

The bell sounds, corner call combos in argot;

Both are snarling—ready—to bring the pain.

A frenzy ensues, no feeling out process;

Fighting’s a sport; it’s also life and death chess.

Maybe it’s strange for warrior women and men

Choose amplified rushes again and again.
