Spin

Vintage Words

.

Consider, for no reason

whatsoever, a spinning

pinwheel turning. Think it

pretty and clever like a jack

set atwirl on the neighbor's

front porch or a toy top

pumped into rotating figures

that vanish into bands of red

and blue.

.

Bike and car tires, windmills,

oily water in a drain all go in

spirals and mesmerizing circles.

You can not help  but pause

momentarily and look.

.

Now consider the lifetime 

you will never recover 

having taken a few moments

to contemplate a poet 's

spin on things that go

whirrrrrrrrrr.
