Stop That Spinning


stop it, i say. your balance is precarious
as it is. one false step and over the
edge you'll go.

so just stop. sit down. cradle your head
in your hands as tenderly as you'd hold
a beloved child.

and let the world spin without you for a
minute or two. you won't miss anything
important. the stories will be the same,
just the names and some of the circumstances
will have changed.

and while you're at it, don't forget to breathe.
