Circus Poem 3. Aerial Hoop.

 

Women who suspend themselves,

lashes glued,

lycra flesh gussied round

a glittering hoop

hang

in conviction.

 

There is craft in being gripped

upside-down…

blood falls to heads

screeching lead-white smiles.

 

Ladies, you exhume love

from circles of desire.
