The Earth Shook

The earthquake struck at five eleven.

Its force was five point seven.
First, I felt nausea rise in me.
I balanced like a surfer newbie.
The quake shifted the earth two feet to the east.
Then shuttled the ground one foot to the west.
It made the banana tree hula.
My world sloshed like a fool.
