Best Poem of Shelly Stevens

Chicago Jump

In the late sun the girls jump rope
Not the sedate ‘I like coffee.
I like tea.' Rhyme that we sang
So off key as children

"A.B.C._
Hit it! _
Thats the way uh huh uh huh
I like it uh huh uh huh_"

But a fast-paced, quick-roped
Jump making the heart pound
And a quiet observer smile
At the competitive nature of the game

"A.B.C._
Hit it! _
Thats the way uh huh uh huh
I like it uh huh uh huh_"

Two ropes swung on the same axis
But the revolutions in opposition
To one another
No gentle rope jumping ...
