First Night Ever in the Ring (Hershey, PA)


the first time I came out
of the locker room the
flash bulbs were popping
like in the old movies

the crowds were screaming
as I walked to the ring
(can you see it?)
my first time in the ring

I whipped off my robe and
dicovered I had forgotten
to put on my wrestling shorts
I had half a woody too

    dear LL, my condolences. no wrestler worth watching goes into the ring with only half a woody. i wrestled in high school and a bit it college (lost all five college matches when substituting for a wrestler who broke his leg skiing; i was available to return early from xmas vacation) . careful where your woody is around the frying oil. good luck in your new career. bri (Report) Reply

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
