Wing category supple taught
wheel powered and mounting
the fickle fling of gravity motion
the tingle of that flip high.
In the air you know it’ll have you
the ground is curved without give
you will hit and rise with the tumbled force:
velocity in control the skid in landing
foot first unbloodied.
Right the lean and tame that
crawling fear that pulls and tugs
and advises in quick pulse bursting
a lack of oxygen a lack of mind:
be inverted and know that
even if a second counts
you are flying, will always fly
air can hold your weight
that solid part of you leaping
is light and mote-like until you land.
