Natsu Basho 2017 Honour Tanka Day 2: CHIYONOKUNI (1-1)

faces yokozuna to
end day two's events

Kakuryu the Mongol,
bastard of agile technique

hands touch sand quickly,
two immense objects smash/slap
unto each other

the yokozuna is stunned
just enough for gravity

follows stunner with pushdown -

they call it kinboshi, or
gold star, earning fat bonus

maegashira beats
yokozuna - underdog
toppling a top star

Chiyonokuni smug smiles
as folks throw cushions with glee
