Cadden, Marie


there comes a point
when the exquisite
pirouette
of the spinning-top
shudders                        
towards a wild
last thrash

a point
spinning on a pin
of sweet impermanence
humming
to the very pivot
of itself 
holding 
the moment
before
the relentless  
wobble
from which
there is no return
