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

or

line leading out of our spindle

Bringing Light Into Darkness

Bringing Light Into Darkness
