DuPont On Point

DuPont On Point

A Poem by John Alexander McFadyen

The DuPont Company first developed Lycra in 1958 to replace latex rubber as a stretching agent in clothes.


Sweat shop

in gym shorts

watching lycra

girls stretch



figure hugging

pants and tops

leave nothing

to the imagination


as I work up

a lather between


and cross trainer,


and static cycle.


I guess it

is a welcome

diversion that helps

not count

each and every

rep and calorie or

strenuous minute,

as I expend

enough energy

to soak

my kit

in salty perspiration

I actually love this so much. It gives me a glimpse into a man's head at the gym. Seems so amusing to think that a guy that looks so concentrated on his workout might be thinking such things.
On a separate note, I do love me some latex outside of the gym >>

Hard not to think of it when body hugging lycra is displayed lol! Many thanks.
Getting fitted and doing exercises are always health wise and their effect are much more appropriated by the body system. But it looks to me like life don't want me close to the gym yet, it has always been keeping me busy.

Well penned, John.

Being that I have no real gym experience to speak of, this write speaks volumes in what I have missed and/or avoided.

Nicely played, John!

ahahaha oh you dirty old man in gym's clothing :))))))) lithely stretching lycra .. hmmmmmmm kinda rolls the tongue when said ... i don't go the the gym any more .. my muscles have too many memories as it is .. ;} natural rhythm ... acceptable sensuality ... i see the setting and scene instantly .. but like i said .. lots of gym time in the past ... i wonder if one can tell those whose reverie has wandered from counting by the speed and frenzy of the reps :))))))))) enjoyed this light hearted trip and workout ... pretty well perfect music too! i watched .. i mean listened to the whole thing!
