Hatsu Basho 2018 Honour Tanka Day One: TAKAKEISHO (1-0)

[the beautiful girthsome ballet of sumo finishes] 

young sumo does well 
now komusubi, thrown to 
yokozuna wolves 

Takakeisho denies bound 
doom verse Kisenosato 

sometimes thrown to wolves 
causes young buck to buck back… 
first day extra pay 

classic forceful sumo at 
dohyo’s edge (as usual) 

weak ass judge gave win 
to Kisenosato - blind 
ass old silk-robed bitch 

decision reversed, the young 
Takakeisho begins strong 

(note to self: begin 
practicing pushing metal 
barrels around yard) 

(fill with cinderblock chunks, call 

it rusted yokozuna) 

S1XTY N1N3 1T R34DS FR0M GR0VND...

sixty nine it reads from ground
but also from other side
flying down from blue heavens

S1TT1NG VND3R P0SS1BL3...

sitting under possible
paradise ev'ry fuckin'
day, but never realize it
