Gorge (Boxers and Canyons)





too much of a good thing
gorge, and your gorge may rise

not a canyon – a narrow valley,
nearly an anagram of George.
Gorgeous George inspired Muhammad Ali

who went on to beat George Chuvalo,
George Foreman

a blow to the face may cause swelling

not such a good thing.


I thought I would revive this post as part of the dVerse challenge today which is to find beauty in ugliness. This poem, I think, reverses that process by moving from beauty to ugliness. Thanks to Mish at dVerse for the challenge.
