Saturday 1

by Arthur Parten

You versus me
Position is everything
Feet sliding making patterns in the dust
Looking for advantage to play
And trophies to hold up in our minds in days to come

You versus me
Hands manipulating skin
wills and bodies grinding
Others leave us a wide ring on the floor
To combine the dark magics of this Saturday's
desert of fighting and fucking


Author's Note: Can't get the form exactly how I want it, regular inthis case, but the message works out quite well, I think. I'm rather new at poetry from another point of view, but it seems to give a kind of freedom.
