Dauntingly, it challenges

Five feet high

In the air.


The firm surface

Quickens my heart.

My hands grace the hoop,

The curves stiff to the touch.


A straddle mount gets me up

Into position I go.

Facing towards the apparatus,

I move the hoop swiftly between my bum.

It hurts and it strains

The lyra molding with my back.


Fancy this?

I think not,

As I dismount.

Red and purple,

Blacken behind my knees,

Up my back.

Hands sore and used,

Straining to even make a fist.


A beautiful art that is not for me,

I’ll leave it be.
