Of revolution

From a distance
You could feel
It coming
Even the fortune
In the fortune
Cookie had
Told of it

All your efforts will pay off

Or was it the one that spoke of

Eternal return

If I’m honest
I don’t entirely
Believe in
That schema
Of certain things
Certainly
Coming back
Again

Some things do

Some things don’t

Phenomena
Phenomenon
Weren’t we one
Weren’t we

Something
Something
Something

Tumble down
Was Aaron’s
Invention

Remember
Remember
That date
In December
Of Jupiter

Saturn
Neptune
The equator

Once you resembled
Something you
Thought you were

Your mood
While you assembled
Furniture

Let’s drive towards it
Towards us
The forget me nots
Will be here
Soon enough

Tumble down
We all fall down
Can we ever live
Up to the invention
Of revolution
