Just Thinking About It

Janet Kuypers
3/24/17

It makes me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy in my head*
to just think about it —
the Earth is spinning
on it’s circular axis
as it’s circling around our Sun.
And our entire Solar System,
it’s catching a ride
at the end of one of the arms
of our spiral Milky Way Galaxy,
riding on the edge
of another massive circle.
My head is swimming
when I think of this spinning,
because even if
I think I’m sitting still,
I think of how
I’m hurtling through the cosmos
in one cosmic circle after another,
and it makes me dizzy, dizzy, dizzy in my head.
