Bout

tunnel vision lets you see only what the light shines on,
all other sightings are left
to wonder about the silhouette
as form struggles with movement’s disabled gait
and blurred eyes see that he is coming for
something that only you have
hold
possess.

with nowhere to go
to hide
to get away
from the man with the limp and the broken pair of boxing gloves
that you were wearing when your lights
went out.
