This gyroscope
is smoothed and shined
by resting for years
in my palm.

It knows no compass,
cannot feel a map.
It never shares its pity
in latitude/longitude.

What's distance to it?
A small piece of type
tied to a ribbon
fluttering in space.

It could not imagine rivers,
mountains, ice caps,
jungles, buttes
and expanses of sand.

It knows no sunrise,
nor the setting of light,
nor the stony small stars,
nor the obscuring clouds.

It will spin and spin,
and spin and spin and spin,
an axis of nods,
turning in purpose.

Soon I will drop it,
spilled out in the dust.
When I reach you,
I'll need both hands free.

If at first you don't succeed destroy all the evidence that you tried.

*sigh*... I know I should come into this sanctuary more often, seeing as how this is where you usually post.

I love your work, M.. It's so wonderful.

days when you aren't here..I just die. you are great.

And the angel said unto me, "These are the cries of the carrots, the cries of the carrots!"
