Aki Basho 2018 Honour Tanka Day One: ICHINOJO (1-0)


[Endo? Fight more like Outdo] 

Ichinojo’s a 
behemoth, but not always 
that motivated 

he begins Aki Basho 
by manhandling poor Endo 

my man weighs over 
five hundred pounds - big even 
by sumo standards 

strange beauty of sumo is 
size matters not entirely 

but for this first day 
of autumn Aki Basho, 
he came strong and hard 

over fifteen days though, that’s 
a lot of heart to carry
