Roller Coaster Mama


Climbing round ladders

of rickety frame

flying down chutes faster and then

climbing with burden

upon steel girder

wondering, worrying why this world

is whirring out-of-order

fast wooden fervor

without time to plan

the next turn, loop, upside down hoop

shaking your brain, hoping to recoup

roller coaster mama

climbing high, high, higher

arms in the air

steady tracks, not there?!

free fall of hope, crashing in disrepair

despaired of parts, waiting for her next dare

roller coaster mama, destiny declared!

climbing, careening

sucking candied carnival air.
