Spin free

This is actually a slightly older one that I just felt like posting.

Spin Free

Smash the compass,
the whirling
viscous sound,
so gravity cannot
hold its needle
on a pivot,
and air cannot
dampen its spin,
and light
cannot reflect
its directions,
and the metal
cannot feel cold
in our hands,
and the magnetic field
becomes invisible
our souls
as the only map to follow.
