Fade to Black

Enter the arena,

A roar shocks his nerves.

Scattered butterflies soar in formation,

Uniform and aligned,

Prepared for battle.

Cross the cage’s threshold,

The tunnel tightens.

Eyes locked on the opponent across the cage;

His teeth clinch the mouthguard;

It won’t be long now.

Released at the bell’s sound,

Both charge the center.

Testing his iron jaw becomes the game plan;

The corner calls for change;

Lights fade into black.
