Everything Starts From the Hip

April #08


1. Haiku Heights – Grasshopper

Flame eclipsing sun
The green and shiny eyes
Bring about future.

2. Poetic Asides – Instructional Poem

“Everything comes from the hip.
In Taekwondo,” my coach said.
“And not only there,” I added
and the whole room laughed.

So, you’d better start from the hip.
Then think of what you really want
to achieve.
And visualize it.
Put your muscles to it.
And you’re ready.

Now repeat.
Faster and higher.
With more rotations per minute.
Higher and faster.
Let everything come from the hip
if you want a charming disaster.
