Spinning Top

Ah, writing day, bringing with it an attempt at poetry. Disclaimer: Not my strong suit.


We ran away we did

to where

the angels landed

when they fell to earth and

lightning storms grew

in the nodes of green legumes.

Where we thought that

they couldn’t find us.

And on the third day

there you were


around like a spinning

top, crashing

into glass roots and dead trees

displacing gods and sprites and

thunderstorms, trying

to claw your way back to heaven.
