Gravity

Photo by Alfred Stieglitz, 1920

 

She stood
in snail paced, ancient wonder
through the center of gravity
forced
grounded
counterbalanced
by the stillness of a spinning world
in ordinary time
emptied the calendar
found herself
lost her mind

No shelter, no justice,
no greed, no crime
only a world
given birth in decay
shattered earth, and night,
and day
while she found herself
through the center
in ordinary time
