Gravity by Laura Summerville Reed
by Laura Summerville Reed
I prove the theory of gravity
as I tumble earthbound
I missed my guide star
by years and only a moment
The bits and pieces that were laid bare
I forgot to pick them up and bring them home again
They prove the theory as well
They were never intended for severalty
The beautiful brilliance of it split me in two
Impaled and splintered; half, carried heavenward
and there still remain
