Survival, Part I (April 27th poem)

Before it happens
Nobody tells you
That this is what
Survival looks like

This is the ugly
Underbelly of triumph

That the champion's life
Has a seedy side:
Sloppy with sweat
Stinking with fear
Ugly not elegant

That its
Usually greasy not graceful
More than you asked for
Than you wanted
Less than you can handle
But not pretty either
