Ringmaster

Ringmaster

Ringmaster (2003)

Not feeling well today, so blogging will be minimalist. Pretty much spent the day with the dizzies -- sleeping a lot scattered with bouts of watching the first season of the SciFi Channel's Battlestar Galactica. It's a good show to drive home the lesson that things like the end of the world can always make matters worse.

But, for the moment, the world spins away (sometimes too much), and rather than keep the blog's lights off today, maybe it's preferable the show go on -- even if the tigers are missing the hoops and the bareback riders are taking a tumble.

No one knows that better at the beginning of the circus of a new week Monday inevitably brings than the subject of today's image.

Spin Cycle

Suddenly everything
I took for granted
Starts to shut down.

Here I lie pulled
Flat against the couch
Eating the crayons.

Gravity is greater
Than the will
To breathe.

Perhaps if I close
My eyes, it will all
Go away, stop spinning.

Tomorrow perhaps my
Sweat will all come
Out in the wash.
