Somebody Spank Me
64 sidereal revolutions around
a flaming orb. For like you,
I walk upon our earth mother.
As she is tilted, I too wobble,
as I dance the obliquity of the ecliptic.
Doubtless, you have seen me-like the sun-
shift through the decades, appearing in different
skyscapes. Even by day and by night,
not only where you find me,
yet who you find me to be, may have
transformed, as the light both without and within
has changed. All I know to do, is follow
this strident desire to keep on revolving-
as long as I am allowed.
