swirl-turn-stop

swirl

turn

stop and the spinning spins on

 

all these little pieces of paper accumulating in my pockets,

covered in numbers and letters and small coloured geometries,

issuing the gentle scent of the path

 

swirl

turn

stop and the spinning spins on

 

smear of accents

across clumps of cameras, rucksacks,

and good walking shoes;

cataloging the evidence to justify

(poor Mona, having to stare at armpits all day)

 

swirl

turn

stop and the spinning spins on

 

the television has run out of names

still pondering the origin of dust

and the destiny of paint

 

swirl

turn

stop and the spinning spins on

 

a lively note

taking flight

above the beyond

where white and black

are the same,

where up and down

are equal,

where near and far

are both each other

 

swirl

turn

stop and the spinning spins on

 

a seashell full of birdcalls

a pocket full of rhymes

 

swirl

turn

stop and the spinning spins on
