everything everywhere
is spinning & circling:
galaxies
stars
planets
atoms
me.
everything everywhere
loses energy
as it circles & spins,
slowly,
until it has no more
and it dies.
each day,
as my spinning planet
completes another rotation,
i circle back through
the motions needed
to keep myself alive.
i will do this
until i cannot,
and then
i will die.
i only have
a few more trips
on this spinning planet’s journey
circling our spinning star.
the planet
and the star
have more left to them,
but their energy, too,
will eventually drift off
and they will die.
nothing can sustain
the energy needed
to exist.
it’s a bit frustrating
to know that
everything everywhere
is doomed,
even the unimaginable
vastness
of the universe.
my daily routine
is what i do
to hang on
as long as i can.
and the natural question
that i must answer is,
why?
