Vipassana (Clear Seeing)

Transitory flash
Of insight, precognition
I see your intent


Foot kicks forward hard
Arm hitches back, presenting

Into this small gap
I lunge with alacrity
Squirm, and close the line


Teasing you to strike
Too close for you, perfect for
Stubby badger paws

Baiting with my lunge
Drawing parry four, riposte
My second intent…


Rare and precious bout—
Next time will be different
Good in its own way

But not the same…
