A brief look at the spinning of the world and some of its side effects.

The incessant
spinning of the world
reliably topples
even the steadiest among us.

And the biggest problem
facing those aspiring
to remain upright
is the fact that
whatever you might cling to,
whomever you instinctively reach for-

they are spinning too,
and so are not
particularly helpful.

It stands to reason then,
(pun intended)
that the only way
to escape this inborn vertigo
is to lean on someone
with perfect balance-

perhaps somethings that sits outside
or above
the ceaseless whirring
of our dizzy, little lives.
