Circular Poetry Contributions, Letterboxing

Circular Poetry Contributor: Tessa Leon

This is performer, poet and producer Tessa Leon’s contribution to the Letter.Box.Stamp.Collect. project, a piece called II Stationary bicycle II.  Tessa says of the connection between the poem and the project:

The concept of the daily grind fascinates me.  I’m constantly cautious of routine and afraid of falling into the season-less cycle of nine-to-fivers.  Spin Class at the gym illustrates my vision of a post-modern Hades, where everyone works so damn hard to go absolutely nowhere.



|| Stationary bicycle  ||

Post-peak hour souls  ||  ride its gleaming furies ||  devouring techno remix ||  and salted guilt communion.

To spin for their sins  ||  a false climb to nowhere  ||  chasing Sisyphus’ orbit  ||  and a derriere mirage.
