Sallow Yellow Posters

there is a gym i pass
everyday
when i go home
outside there are
posters of famous boxers
the posters are all
faded
and sallow

sometimes i can see inside
the men
are glistening
and strong
they stumble about
mouths open
they have been boxing
for a while
and need a rest
i bet their muscles are
twitching

the posters outside
they look tired to me
like they also need
a rest

poor boxers. why do they leave their mouths open like that? rip them down and burn them.

burn them? that is a good idea. i do not burn things often enough.
