what it had lost

set the world in front of us
holding the top with a palm
and preventing it from moving

stood there, with a finger placed
held over where we were from
then, hand removed
we watched the great world spin

took fingers and dipped them into the oceans
felt the collective breath of the thing
draw in
waiting for that influence to be removed
to return to normal

but with a flick of the wrist
a push of my fingers
the whole thing spun just a little faster
with no hope of ever regaining
what it had lost
