Momentary Lights

You are like a living circle of stars
in constant motion.
We keep you moving,
We keep you moving,
There’s no earth under your feet,
But here’s a secret:
It’s what you need.

For with creation,
comes
insecurity,
ephemerality,
And death
preserved in time.
And then there is stillness.
Good for an hour
of plugging in,
but it’s the raw fire
that cleans you.

So pick back up,
And resolve
Not to resolute.
And open back up
To the swerve.
