Upon Winning – Author Candace Meredith


He is a gymnast –

the even bars, rings,

pommel; his body

is like gel in the

fabric of his life –

shaped and molded,

sharp as a crow’s

beak and poignant

like glass before the

sound begins to break

free of what was silence

when he stepped onto

the mat – and then

landed there as perfect

as two pair of dice

or the lottery of

cheering – it is

the same, or similar,

when the ego

is detached and prefect,

like perfectly winning

when it was time.

And the final score

wouldn’t matter much.
