Spinning

I woke up today and the earth was
spinning
I didn’t feel it, didn’t know it, didn’t
think about it…but…
standing on the moon I might have seen
it, like it was in my hand, slowly passing under
me;
slowly at a thousand miles an hour.
Today was spinning past me like a garden
hose…no handle…high pressure water
spraying
a wet spewing snake
spinning.
I can see it now but like
I’m not
there, standing close
but not
there…removed.
I saw today spin away and spin back and
felt my feet; flat
on the earth.
Spinning but so big, so big, so
slow…I felt in control like
I want to be in control, want
to hold on…
Earth is an illusion.
It’s always
spinning…
I just don’t
know it until…it’s so far away
that
I can hold it
in
my hand.
