Otherwise – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

Balance – V.J.s Weekly Challenge 35




Gravity, now there’s a thing,
a check in the balance of worlds,
without which we’d all fly off
into the sun.
Like love,
the choice between two positives,
apart, together, whole,
you and I,
of course,
otherwise, we’d just fly off.
