Kilos - Poem by maggie oke

You can weigh my kilos
Count my laps
Stretch my gluteus
Extend my baps
I’m a human cyborg attached to the pedal
Burn the calories
Bruise the saddle
But what of the me the essence the soul
What does it weigh as part of the whole?

    What does it weigh? Sometimes it weighs heavily as we know, maybe more than the whole! I like to believe the soul must have gravity due to it's very nature. See, now you've set me off so therefore a great poem! Esra Sloblock (Report)Reply
