Remember the Spin


There was once a center to the world.
You could tell by the way you could feelĀ 
Being on the peripheral.

Sometimes a little tasty trip
Could take you nearer
With smart lights and
Dangerous attractions
Surrounding those pits
So deep and final

Well, I can say that the fog has cleared
Now there is no helpful illusions
The starkness of the day is obvious
Though it is as soft and inviting
As a cinder block

The solidity and unforgivingness
Makes up for the little
Crushes and scrapes

There is a general sense of Oh Shit
Just said under the breath
Like a little prayer before bed
Except this one is neitherĀ 
Asking or Hoping
Instead, just bracing for the Hit

seems i have been saying the 'oh shit' prayers a lot lately. Embracing for a hit has a nice ring to it :)

And someone should feed these babes, poor girls :P LOL
