Hour 9

Ciel shimmies up that silky blue like a monkey
wrapping and weaving it around herself when she reaches the top
a pause
that’s my heart up there
I hold my breath
she launches herself into a drop
tumbling over – once, twice, three, times
jolting to a stop, grin breaking across her face
some say you must be crazy to let her do that
I say look at her – so lithe, so joyful up there
she says needs her daily dose of upside down
I’d be crazy to say no to that!
