A literary journal featuring poetry, fiction and nonfiction by writers around the globe.

Balanced but breaking
with sure speed spinning
and swaying
as gravity grips with an
invisible
indestructible thread
tethering this globe
so that nothing lets it rest.

Now it spins in my hands
as a singer
in the background wails,

“Everybody's changing
and I don't feel the same.”

Like this globe
I am also spun
bound to a constant weight
an endless dread
someone put me there
so that I've become
sedentary and tamed
with nothing changing
while the world carries on
as I spin steadily
never changing
just swaying
