    To deal out double cards and place a set of two in your hands
    or even three
    puts a tight angry fear inside my chest

    But to give away all I have in faith of you
    sets me free

    Here is a table set for two
    or even three
    portions enough for a king in one corner of the pyramid, and enough to save the starved at the edge of the sea

    At times the wind is so giving, and there seems to be an undying current of air circulating through my skin

    I'm pedaling faster down a smoother road
    I can swerve inside this lane and on the gravel down a different path

    If I fall, which I won't, there will be no one to catch me but me
    this is just the way it feels
    to be free
    if I fall

    I spin in circles like a child
    I am the child I use to be
    I've got strings flying from my hands, as I go
    another world or two or three
    pivoting around me

    the world revolves
    and revolution consists of the millions of eyes that see

      I liked this one a lot more than "A Man to Man" -- not to say I didn't like "A Man to Man." They seemed to have a very similar direction and writing process. But yet both are so different. Very cool. How do you write this stuff? And what's this one about?

    Giving more to someone than one wants. The third line suggests resentment in giving that much away and the fear of what may be done with it.
    A basic metaphor of "the cards in one's hand".

    Yet, there's a freedom in putting yourself completely out there.

    Based upon the title, I'd say this stanza references a love triangle. The portions being plentiful for those at the table and enough to satisfy those on the very edges of the situation. So, enough to satisfy all demands.

    Not so sure here. I think of a giving wind as something that cools one off and lets one breathe. With that in mind, the "air circulating through my skin" reads as something that cools the speaker off, reduces stress and difficulty. Allows one to breathe.

    First line makes me think of having fun or escaping.
    The smoother road though suggests choosing an easier path.
    "I can swerve..." part being a "can" suggests, "could, but won't". The gravel path seems much more difficult and not worth the risk.

    Independence and self-reliance.

    Spinning in circles being a sense of confusion, or fun. Like a child: naieve, simple, true. A child would take more pleasure in simply spinning around.
    The strings while spinning lend more toward the idea of fun and free and happy.
    World's pivoting around you. World's revolving around you. Suggests a sort of conceit the speaker has, as I assume the world's are other people. In the love triangle sense, I get it, but the speaker may presume too much. Sense the poem is representative of the speaker and says nothing of these other world's, I suppose it is expected.

    I don't find this stanza useful. I would remove it and let the poem end with S7.
    Perhaps I just can't figure out a way for this stanza to make sense though.

      This is a poem that does dissect the complexities in life, and reduce the stress of living day to day into enjoying the simplest pleasures. And this was a pleasure to read.

      I like it quite a bit. Especially the part about the spinning. Paints a pretty picture in my head.
