Ode To The Boxing Gloves:
After Clint Smith
A heavily padded mitten worn in boxing
To protect the precious hands of the woman that holds all 4 world titles in boxing
Using the boxing gloves to protect her fingers, knuckles, and joints to prevent them from getting injured
Protecting her hands from getting injured while she’s landing and executing the wide variety of left hooks, right hooks, upper cuts, jabs, and knock out swings that have landed on the faces of
–Nikki Alder alder
–Marie Eve Dicaire
Leading her to win these fights by TKO and UD.
So thank you gloves
For protecting the hands of T-rex
Our two time olympic gold medalist, and three division boxing champion

Attorney by day and graffiti/street artist by night. Charlie Boike has become a hose hold name in Flint’s art scene. A few years back Boike launched the “Bring It Fest,” later re-named “Aerosol and Audio,” uniting graffiti artists and muralists with live music in Flint parks like Kearsley and Memorial. The single-day event attracted as many as 700 people, with a graffiti-inspired wall as the center of attraction.
Artists from as far away as Texas and Singapore joined Boike in filling hundreds of square feet with collective, graffiti imagery. Along with graffiti art, Boike has become known for murals depicting a wide variety of pop icons from “South Park” TV series character, Eric Cartman, to boxing legend Muhammad Ali. Boike says his murals are neighborhood-specific. You can see other works of Boike all throughout Flint.
