spinning dirt

and the wheel keeps on turning

though we don’t know where we’re going

we thought we were headed forward

but I swear we’ve seen that tree before, the one with the boulder

and that lake, it used to be full

but now it sits like a pond or a puddle,

more salt than water

and the people stand around and yell

but they yell at each other:

two opposing forces

red-faced, bulgy eyed,

righteous in their rightness

while the wheel keeps spinning backwards

spitting dirt everywhere

leading us

nowhere
