BLACK BELT/BOOK – FOR ROSEMARY

You took me with a karate punch

blistering the air around

you

it took some time for me

to recover when all of a sudden

I lost my cool

and responded with deftly

aimed punches

at your frontal spine

which shook with bereft leaves

as I tore you out

of your broken sleeved cover

and showed you the news

that I would recover

you with somnolence

and love.
