brass ring

"hands"
Image via Magpie Tales

thumpa da
thump

i catch myself
caught up

in our spinning
rhythm go round

merrily galloping, we
bright, sweet, lovely

you then me
you then me

조금
jogeum
조금
jogeum

경주
gyeongju
경주
gyeongju

together
we lace

restless
thoroughbred

thundering
pulses

one
strong

infinite
loop
