Whirl

Gripped perilously in the loop
around and around
a faulty spinner.

Suspended and dangling
back and forth
a swinging pendulum.

The speed varies each day
quick and slow
a broken metronome.

Undulating through the air
up and down
an infinite roller coaster.

Please cut me down
catch and keep
this befuddled butterfly.

I don’t want to whirl any longer.
