A pretzel in the park

Steven Retchless, pole fitness champion*

Four nimble limbs of gold go bold-
ly round a naked pole,
defy earth's gravity's own hold,
delight a hungry soul.

To be that pole that twist of fate
would grab and hold to me.

Enticing daydreams that creates
beneath the hardwood tree.

A winding pretzel on a stick,
sprinkled with salty sweat:
a sexy topologic pick,
the treat I won't forget.
