From the couch, (last weekend you were home)

xboxcontroller

hip to hip
elbow to elbow
fighting dynasty emperors
witha silver boat
pixelated swords,
knife fans,
and fire hoops

thumbs
on trampoline buttons
x attack, b super attack
a jump
xxbabbbxxbxba
tipping
the control
stick
to run toward the enemy
combatants
squinting
for
red and green arrows
navigating the
in-world map
for the next named
villain

hip on hip
face on neck
fingers on shoulder
blades
whispering plans
lunging forward
arrowless
roadless map
