Aki Basho 2018 Honour Tanka Day Twelve: GOIEDO (10-2)


[rookie mistake charge] 

ozeki master 
busting out psychology 
to psyche out Abi 

young Abi never even 
got his hands down it felt like 

multiple matta, 
couple stand-back-up stare downs, 
got Abi back heeled 

when they finally started, 
Goiedo got him on jump 

Abi's energy 
burst pushed back, but Goiedo 
stepped aside to left 

helpful swat, and Abi's down; 
Goiedo remains top-notch
