Once more around

Once more around

A handrail almost too high
and three steps until the landing
and the chute, high sides
to keep you steady, and then
you’re off in a whirl of independence
with perfectly timed sound effects,
but the ride is over too quick
and before you know it
you’re back on the ground
pointing our attention to your
independence and accomplishment,
pleased less with the wind at your face,
more with your competing the circle.
Yes, we saw that.
No, you weren’t scared at all.
Okay, quick, go again,
before someone jumps in line
before you.
