THE BOXER

Billed as the Alabaster Disaster,
a fighter by his trade,
he made his bread
taking blows to the head
with such force that
of course, his thoughts
were in chaos. Graphic
violence does that to plastic
people; when he hit the height,
no one else reached his altitude.
But when he fell, it felt as if life
was a bottomless mine.
