Wrestling Tanka - Set Seven

[Honky Tonk Man]
Punk Rock Wayne Ferris -
most dramatic change was to
a bitter old coot.

Could've been Jerry Lee to
Lawler's Elvis, but fell short.
~~~~~~~
[Nature Boy Jesus Christ]
The mantle of bleach
blonde tresses is a crown of
genius carny thorns.

Blade job stigmata is the
essence of wrestling's real soul.
~~~~~~~
[Video Package]
"The Anvil Chorus"
made for perfect videos
for Link and Sweetan.

Verdi's strings accented the
head-first dives and piledrivers.
~~~~~~~
[LEGDROP!]
The greatest moment
of impact - one inch before
the legdrop connects.

A cacophony of marks
drowns out the one, two, three slaps.
~~~~~~~
[Mid-card]
Mike Jackson's stubble
on the back of your neck as
the sleeper takes hold...

Eyelids shut, hearing the bell
ring, the crowd cheering calmly.
~~~~~~~
[Cauliflower Alley Cats #2]
Many workers die old
and alone, blankets spread on
arthritic kneecaps.

Gimmick plaques balanced on the
mantle, waiting to be hung.
~~~~~~~
[Cowboy Heels]
Black Bart chose to buy
a new duster instead of
resoling his boots.

An outlaw has an image
to uphold - wild long hair helped.

Death Valley Driver Video Review #155 Hype!


DVDVR #155
Another DVDVR out, with a highly disturbing cover. Only thing I did was meander my way through an old Smoky Mountain Wrestling show. Some very good shit in this issue though.
