For as long—and just as 
surely—as the world 
has been turning, 

we too have been cooking-
up our own ways 
of spinning:

wandering out 
from our center
in increasingly wider ellipses

and screwing 
our flushed faces upward
toward heaven—

not to discern 
whether such a thing 

but rather, to repeat 
the pageantry 
of our looking 

in the hope we might 
someday internalize 
the feeling.
