The Yo-Yo Man

THE YO-YO MAN

 

Whirling, it made the day

seem shorter than

all other days had been.

 

It sang and leapt

at his fine-tuned command;

his finger tingled,

 

as the loop pulled tight.

He winced a smile. For now,

he’d thrown his cares away;

 

next time, perhaps,

he’d really let them go.
