gravity draws

the ink from your pen

into your diary —

there would be no motivation otherwise

for ink to form

words like

“wished”, “stupid”, and

“i don’t know”.

 

gravity never quits:

when a plane soars,

when rain falls,

when a bowl breaks,

because a raccoon has broken in.

 

gravity sinks ships,

makes waves, and

keeps all the fallen leaves

for itself.
