I Am That 'Child' In 'Your' Swing - Poem by James McLain
i am that 'child' in your swing,
knowing no better i sing.
i have no pockets,
my worlds are transparent.
and the words on my face
like yours is a blank,
so i swing.
i pull on the rope and i swing.
it is my song,
and it is long and strong.
each thing you have done,
and my memory is long.
what you have done,
when you killed me was wrong.
i pull on the rope while i swing.
up at the apex is the arc.
it is high at the top,
bound up tight
and your gagged
and you swing on my tether.
so i pull on the rope and i sing,
a sweet song.
as i move it up, you move it down.
i pull on the rope just a little bit
harder each time.
i am that 'child' in the swing.
and hanging you down,
i have tied off
i am that 'child' in your swing.
i love when we swing in the dark.
