earthquake

ice shake
shake
and bake
a cake
with me

my world turned up-side-down
tumbled
tousled
tangled

and the cups are chipped
and the bacon falls on the floor

sitting on the kitchen floor
I weep
because I know
nothing
will ever
be the same.

changing schedules/plans/practices

can you dance with change?
can you follow the thread back
to where it begins?
to the far off cave where all secrets are held.

can you dance with change?
even on days when you are angry
that your plans are disrupted once again.
can you dance with anger?

can you dance with change?
rolling and tumbling and cartwheeling
until you lie exhausted
sprawled out on the floor.

can you dance with change?
gracefully accommodating
until you stop
turn
and walk the other way.
