Dim Mak

No quarter given to you.

Deep-rooted, a miscarry or

somebody’s miscue, trudged out

like a stab wound to the front

of a face, laden with warm sweat.

Please, hold still.  Are you ready for my new idiom?

Of all specimens, you are a blast, a lot of fun.

What if we had known then

what we clearly know now?

Our performance, so poor,

might have still traveled.

Once in a while,

I’ll pull one or two issues out

and dog-ear the techniques worth remembering, cause

I hate my pressure points. You know all their tender places.
