The Circus Tent

Oh the trapeze!
To swing and whoop and holler
Our weight
Brass pendulums
Claiming the sky on either side
With each sway
As we slice back and forth
Holding with knuckles white
The cherry-red and tulip-yellow
Of the circus tent
A fizz of orange
The netting a jumble below
And the spire a pinpoint above
Look at the stars peeping through!
While we tumble and dive
Through time
And my safe space
Here in our tent
The rocking back and forth
A comfort and a joy
