Boxer (NaPoWriMo 5)

The poem arrives
with a black eye,
a split lip, saying
"Yeah, well you
should see the poet."


NaPoWriMo 5: make it personal.

Oh, yes! Witty and well-crafted. A consideration: How about simply "Boxer" (?) Please feel more than welcome to comment and critique at www.gregoconnell.com. My latest is called 'Were we a poem' (Find NaPoWriMo 2010 in the top menu bar) - Greg =)
