Kick the Heart
Ray Gonzalez 
Kick in the heart.
Kick the starting lance.
Throw the ground a word and stand back.
The color of terror is the envy
on body rags, the dragonfly war
scraped off a painting inside the door.


(Poetry Diary 260 – 6/12/17) My kid went through “Grading” this weekend for his Karate class–got to break apart a piece of wood w/his foot, etc.  So I looked for karate poems this morning but didn’t find any at the usual places I go to…Found this fine kicking one, though!
