An-Yi: Boxing is a violent sport. I can't understand why some people enjoy it . . .
Daiki: There's a beauty to it. Also, some humans relish violence.
Chariya: Aren't most fights fixed anyway? The underworld controls more than we generally imagine . . .
Bhäraté: (briefly tempted to speak, then deciding silence is wiser)

thai boxing

attack of the ankles
flying feet and fists
opponents squaring off
exploratory probes
swift turn-arounds
another dude meets defeat.

heels bending gracefully
punches lightening swift
bodies move like fluids
another dude off his feet.

in this battle of attrition
the margin for error is thin
perfect timing is essential
for those who WIN
