ali vs. liston

baby i’m so fucking tired
of promoting this fight

but you don’t know how to take the gloves off

so this morning
i’ll be a snarling muhammad ali
arms spread wide hovering over
your supine sonny liston

in my black bra
white tank top and amber necklace

before putting the rest of my day on

i noticed my arms are ripped
from lifting children

yeah, buddy
ready to box

i am the louisville lip

and in my eyes resides
and notions
of kicking you to death
