Words: Hyper-bowling

Have you ever tried
bowling in space?
Rolling the ball
toward pins that float
disembodied
above
polished wooden
runways?
For every action
an equal
and opposite
reaction
The ball flies
and slows
as you’re pushed
backwards
arcing
a parabolic
trajectory
until collisions
bring you back to Earth

Zero-gravity bowling
No-one ever said
it would
catch on
Though they tried
screaming
from rooftops
to anyone who would
listen
Hyper-bowling
hyperbole
Who ever heard
of anything
so
silly?

[From Deanna’s prompt of ‘hyperbole’]
