Acrobat

 

Jumping through hoops,
jumping to conclusions,
tumbling, turning cartwheels,
all at your behest,
turning tricks for your delight.

Spring and balance,
mind and body as one,
controlled from afar,
more marionette
than acrobat.

Twist and turn,
leap and leap again,
falling to the floor,
falling for your deception,
heart and soul in freefall.

Jumping through fire,
jumping to command,
always under orders
never flying without wires,
never twisting free.
