Tilt-a-whirl
  JERRY BROWNING  

 ..FOLLOWING SEAS   

 

Tilt-a-whirl
 

i stand amid strangers
pressed two-dimensional
against the cylinder,
beauty and answers
dance before me

i strain
and scream
and sweat
as i reach out

inertiaís my chains
but i will break free
laws are made
to be broken

darkness settles
warm and damp
casually revealing
your face changes
into thousands of forms
and colors
like a kaleidoscope
still you canít fool me

i taste your perfume
and smell your desire
we wonít spin forever
so tease if you please

Orlando, Florida Ď84
