i can understand that perfect physics
that balance of gravity
holding earth to/from the sun

i do not understand, cannot
why we float, revolve, rotate, move

there can be no other reason
than silent, divine grace of intervention

                    plus — if we didn’t move
                    we might exist
                    in this form.

                                        think of all
                                        the problems
                                        that would
