PLANETS

circling in our solar system

competing gravity

can be

 

so disruptive

knocked out of orbit

ecosystem’s off

where’s the off switch

life, I need to pause, regroup

oh, you just spit summer  

and say: here!

this is your holiday

enjoy me

so I lay my bronzing, once-pale body out

a sacrifice of sorts

to Greek gods playing with fire

and nothing

is permanent

they say they found water on Mars

 

we are the ants of ants of ants

playing in a cosmic sandbox
