My video response to Sophia’s Poem:
Watch the boxers
Brawling, but there’s no hate towards each other.
Just their sport.
Watch the lovers
Sparring, but there shouldn’t be hate towards each other.
It’s just their love.
A stroke towards his cheek
A blow that emits
An effect that drifts sweat beads supersonic.
Their words strike like fists
Their affair is like boxing
There’s only peace after the bloodshed.
Bodies slicked with wet,
Blood or sweat?
Bodies slicked with blood,
Does red mean war or love?
Bodies slicked with sweat,
Exhaustion from aggressive amusement or destructive desire?
Watch the boxers dance,
Watch the lovers dance,
Is there a difference in what you see?
