Today’s resolution: Spin stories

25 Jul

Whirling
set into motion now
set into motion.

So the other witches said
“Okay, you win; you take the prize,
but what you said just now —
it isn’t so funny
It doesn’t sound so good.
We are doing okay without it
we can get along without that kind of thing.
Take it back.
Call that story back.”

But the other witch just shook its head
at the others in their stinking animal skins, fur
and feathers.
It’s already turned loose.
It’s already coming.
It can’t be called back.
