Turnings - Poem by Gerard Geiger
Turnings

Strong yet exhibiting
a delicacy in form and
function.
A slightly oval joint
with a rounded point
gently sloping into
the sculpted contour
between the achille tendon
and the valley of the
ankle.

Strong and well-turned
a thing of beauty
strapped to an inclined
plane,
moving in a stiffly elegant
manner...a full three inches
above the floor...a
graceful arched tendon posed
provocatively
for alert eyes.
