Hoop and Stick

Hoop and Stick

(A Poem)


Madeleine Anderson – STAFF WRITER


hoop and stick is -0

circle wanton as line

ascends his pyramid


axle and wheel

bone bound to her

flexible ball companion 


number one! and zero

gabbing oh! lingua line

link our howls


hoop and stick is the filter of negation

glass lenses fighting their 

eye formed frame


long sound against short


checkered and the checkers


line cutting our loop,

line abandoning our loop


line leading out of our spindle
