Kenpo worked

I had never been to that club before

I was there to meet friends

they never showed


I decided to take someone home

my ego was

bigger than my fat ass


I smiled


she smiled back

I moved

we danced and I didn’t waste time


I didn’t know she was spoken for

wasn’t told

wasn’t warned

I didn’t know she had a boyfriend

I said

when the attack came


I gave as good as I got

I was fat

but I was big

and four years of Kenpo


not a master


they threw us out

in the street

we finished it

I got a black eye

a broken finger


I left him bleeding

my gifts

given generously

a broken nose

a broken arm


I was jacked

the Kenpo worked


I never went back to class.
