Swing, Roundabout

For that moment, my hand
met the stitches on your back
and you were away:
a weighted pendulum

with chains either side.
Quite safe – your grip
saw to that; even so,
you marvelled at my license.

‘Meet my eyes,’ you said,
sat at the disc’s centre,
the world drunk about me –
and I did, I held on.
