#6 – Untethered


I am girl on the moon


and accounted for

you even see me       sometimes

half the time

but I lose footing

more often than I should

feel weightless


not much holds me fast

keeps me in place

things come       and things go

round and round

round and round


but I suppose we’re all spinning

these days

find ourselves on the dark side

watching for something to hold onto
