Vanitas

This life
is so full of these fleeting moments
as the Earth spins about its axis
like a dreidel in flight
“Gimme, gimme Gimmel!”
or as our system revolves around the galaxy
like the ball spins around the pole
“Now, when you win,
yell as loud as you can, Tetherball!”
passes by like sand sifted by hand
only a few grains stick, but the rest
fall back in their place
attempt to disturb it as you wish
but it’ll still form this boundless beach
step into the water and let the flow
encompass you, go with the undertow
let it tumble you and whisk you away
with the ebbs of this deserted bay
it’ll mix with you and clear the clay
The lies
