Check List

Is my shoulder loose my
Arm relaxed my
Grip upon the blade

Is my weight on my back
Leg my shins upright my
Hind foot tucked beneath my

Are my advances small and neat with
Variable speed and random
Length, always ready to
Leap back

Is my gaze glued to your chest
My distance finely gauged my
Lunge spontaneous and
Nicely timed

Got all that?
Yup. Neatly queued and tallied on the sheet
Each square ticked off.
So fabulous, now

God dammit, throw away the list
