Shin Yu Pai's Unnecessary Roughness

Sample:

P.E.

there is something
for everyone and for
everyone else
there is

running or jumping
in place a basic
knowledge of the body’s
locker room

unlettered sweatshirts
and white crew socks
rubber shoes and rubber
pants’ed again, show

your school spirit or
just your undergarments
soiling the parquet floor
of the gymnasium

on a rainy day,
the school colors are drab
grey as any prefab notion of
taught "fitness"

a sense of team or
tribe, it’s cannibals
and rats who delight
in eating their own

- from Unnecessary Roughness (xPress(ed), 2005)
