The art of war, the sculpting of the body

No facility in this facility

Not now

 musculature of body and soul emerge

Primordial

Battle cry of ancient warriors evoked

Pushing to a point of no return,

Giving birth to uncivilized pain

hostility breeding tenacity

Violent, inflamed instincts rise

From foot to head,

blood pumping skyward

and inward

expressed in wild-eyed determination.

Sweat.

Sound,

Audibly muted,

The cavern of stored primal energy

spews its directionless lava within the host

Blurry radiance of razor sharp effort

 Stabilization

Strain

Excavation

Birth

Breath
