triple lindies

you do not need to judge me

I’m not performing

triple lindies

for you to hold up

your card of perfect 10

I’m not swinging on uneven bars

stopping up high

my retton flip complete with

stuck feet

not for anyone but me

I know the judges will always

sit perched in their dedicated seats


always watching

but I will not

climb up to those chairs

I will dive next to you

and circle high bar together

in synchronized fashion

never noticing

your open hand caused too much splash

or your dismount was slightly off center

I will be doing and being by your side

too joined to judge

too connected to condemn
