Imperfect Rotation

by Sarah Brindell

The surface of the earth

is not smooth

there are bumps and crevasses,

lumps and fault lines,

peaks, caverns

stark deserts, ample foliage,

oceans lapping up residue

from fallen sky scrapers

scattered candy wrappers,

and roadways so randomly dispersed

without pause for symmetry,

or artistic merit

Down in the muck and sweat

of all this defective beauty,

we tangle together,

climbing the walls

of our own limbs and blankets,

ripe and pungent

as the damp night

cocoons around us

surging and rooted

in a constant rotation
