Still Spinning Earth


There are always sunsets and sunrises

these chase each other across a sphere

do they meet at the Arctic Circle

and if not one its opposite?

Do these sure polarities

their clear yes and no’s

become occluded?

Somewhere on a sphere

tilted still by the moon

there somewhere

between here and there

are the two one?


I remember so many years ago

that spot on the Four Corners

a marker on high desert floor

where in the US Southwest

one point is divided with

human intersecting lines

I spun on the circle there

where was I

was I dizzy?

I was not yet an adult

If I turn around fast enough today

could this sunset rise

light reversing its course

can not its timeless soul

at least do this?
