I knew a boxer named Ceres.

His real name was Jim but he liked Ceres.

“I have an icy mantle and a rocky core”

he used to say. 

His heart was broken many times.

There are beautiful women and men with huge fists.

There is Ceres who is tiny and planets that are small.

Planets that you can barely detect

that still cast a shadow.
