The Final Bout

See me, see you
Cold ferrous
Focused and determined
One purpose, willing and ready

My soliloquy begins
First to strike, illusive deception
Too quick to hold…must continue
Quicken the pace

Habitual steps exerting bursts of valor
Eyes of the hand
The propulsion of the arm
Wanting the immediate response of the bullet fired from its barrel

Our silent exchange
You, both deceiver and combat warrior
Fierce with fervent passion
One step ahead, always a step ahead

As our engagement becomes more animated
The linear paths intertwine
Strong base, never failing
Constant vigilance

Till one false move…violent clash…too close for comfort
Cold ferrous, speck of blue
Spirals of anticipation
Moist with exhaustion

You see me, as I see you
Last chance
Prise de fer
You’re all alone
