smiley cat

Yo-yo

I start
nestled firmly, solidly
in your palm

Until with a purposeful
gesture
I extend with brilliant force
at your direction

and spin, spin

perhaps I light up
change colors
glow

but I spin, spin

and then my tether flips
and tangles
a kaleidoscope of knotwork

Until I drop
grounded far from
your hand.
