I Had to Hold up the Sky Today
I had to hold up the sky today.
My back hurt, but it was my turn.
It has to be.
Someone to watch the people.
One to spin the Earth.
One to nuture the plants.
Another to watch the animals.
The seas are stirred by that one.
Over there, the one who dreams.
This dream – makes everything work.
What? You think all this ran by itself?
