Jumping Rope

(from the NaPoWriMo prompt: write a poem that features forgotten technology.)[I have a lot of students who know what those things are and today, in just one day, I have used the terms "Zoom," "Screencastify," "Kami," "remote distance learning," and "stream" more times than I can count. So, I think what the prompt really wanted me to do was talk about something old that people think of as old or quaint. Also, I didn't want to write about that other stuff.]

I have a jump rope

that is brand new

even though it’s

a pretty old idea.


Actually, I have three—

one in the garage

and one on a hook

in the basement

workout area.


The other one is

still in the box. I

like jumping rope

but it hurts, so I don’t.
