Dempsey and Firpo

The men in the front
have Modigliani eyes.

Brothers or lovers
Lunia, Jeanne, Anna.

Two men,
in the guise of pugilists,
try and kill
without being

Firpo's face,
all angles and bangs
watches the aftermath
of a single blow.

Dempsey in white,
knocked soundly,
over the middle rope
into the arms
of sweaty gentlemen
and the sporting press.

Lights in the distance

Frozen in a moment

In a daze
mistaken for
approaching trains.
