Cri de Coeur

by Lyn Moir

You come at me from all angles,
ricocheting, high on adrenalin –
you’ve got me climbing the wall…
 
Just look at it from my perspective:
the oblique approach,
saut de chat, passement, roulade, demitour...
 
franchissement, frankly,
doesn’t shatter my defences,
dress it how you will in fancy French…
 
Parkour? Mais merde alors…
 
In plain English, darling,
take a running jump…
