Spinnning for Jessica

the teacher is a spinning smile is too skinny spinning yelling “keep spinning”
i am spinning, the teacher is spinning, the thin people are legs spinning.

spinning legs molded to spinning hips at the spinning joint are spinning, the teacher
is a spinning smile is too skinny spinning yelling “keep spinning keep climbing ”
i am spinning, the teacher is spinning, the thin people are legs spinning.

bodies spinning sweating and steaming
keep their legs spinning, the teacher
is a spinning smile is too skinny spinning yelling “keep spinning keep climbing keep spinning”
i am spinning, the teacher is spinning, the thin people are legs spinning.

thin people are legs spinning, impassioned spinning legs
thaw into groans spinning into a searing boil
a person stops spinning, the teacher
is a spinning smile is too skinny spinning yelling “hurry the fuck up keep spinning”
i am spinning, the teacher is spinning, the thin people are legs spinning.
