Living In A Centrifuge
by Rick Tornello

Earth,
You, me and the rest of the inmates here in birthed:
 
5    Kms on its axis
30  Kms about its star
230 Kms the solar systems as a whole
add about another 600 to 640 Kms for the galaxy.
Cumulative yes it is.
 
Imagine being in a test tube rotating that fast!
 
 Then imagine what the DNA of any creature must be like,
Think of your test tube again.
Spin spin spin.
And you wonder why we’re as crazy as we are,
killing each other over?
face against the glass
belief in the super-unnatural?
pushed to the edge
acting in a manner ?
 
I’m gonna puke.
