Void

Did you have to say
that you had gone there
and come back
and were ready to stop
the traveling bus?

This spiral life
isn’t what we come to
it’s how we walk
how we stop from falling
off the place.

Did you have to say
it doesn’t matter?
It’s all that does
this spiral afterlife.
It isn’t what we die for
it’s how we keep
from falling off.

It’s the whirling secret
at the center
the seeds of a thousand flowers
the tips of the grasses
alight with the sun
over the low fence
around our hearts.
