Weight of disgust
a burst of exclamation
a trail lies

Emotion choked –
snappy cutting off of air

battle cry
The finality a mark
Of farewell

Teeth are clenched
lips forming an opening
for arrows:

A house
a man’s abode.

A flow

Of anger
A gouge
pulling out your insides

Two bamboo swords
striking against one

A sweep of leg
In length of time

the swift knife
piercing squarely
through my centre
