Lean-To

Earth tilts

Unlike pinball

The other way

Then tilts

The other way

x

We light fires

To appease

So that the axis

Listens

Turns us back

To growing seasons

x

We’ll have winter

Now

While they have

Summer

The world is made

Of complements

As well as

Paradox

Winter summer,

Equator and the poles

x

A world on which

All things hold

That must hold

x

Our home

Embraces opposites

In seasons

In tilting one way

Then the other

In value for us all

And each one
