The orbit of things

Things turn

Themselves

In orbit

We turn

Around

Ourselves

Ellipses

Equinox

Circles

Lines

Of passing

Time

All

That we are

Leaves us

& stays

As we make our

Way around

Stars we are

The way

Things go

The orbit

Of everything

Orbiting

Everything

Gravity

Pulls

At the

Substance

Of things

Pushing

& pulling

At this

Bone

Machine

Pulling

Itself up

For

Another

Day

Weather

Weather

Oh Jupiter

Maybe

More the

Mood of

The day

Storms

Of things

So

Far away

Bodies

Expanding

Contracting

In the

Midst

Of

Space
