Intimate War


desperate fleshly

brush with fists and feet


this intimate lick

of chi

too close in the fight

in the ring



loving them

to the floor

press against the energy

red in the thigh

arms that hold the thrill

of bulging tempestuous control

the moment of


as I succumb

and tap



on pine

in beautiful well-deserved pain

  1. martial arts is all about sex, in fact like my friend likes to say everything is about sex except sex itself lol
    I like how you captured that feeling of intimacy that exists when one practices martial arts. I think judo is much more intimate than aikido so I decided to stick with Aikido.
