[training on the heavy bag]

training on the heavy bag
still composed of stones
we’re getting better at the silence
you can’t tell when we’ve broken bones

we used to study Krishnamaruti
we used to study koans
we used to sing a pretty song
now we try to stifle moans

raining out blood on rags again
yes it’s still red we see
we’ve paid a mint to make confessions
but here the bleeding’s free
