In our otoliths we sense
We have lost our world,
Hearing world slip away.

About us , on a flat belly,
We dance like dervishes
In skirts defying gravity.

Our gravity goes upward.
A gravity is falling funny,
A Newton apple going up.

We smell a fall in gravity
In the first rain of worms
On a new earth of plants.

We see gravity fail a sky
When we see silver fish
Flying about each other.

Like worms we are earth.
Our otoliths have lost us.
We hear earlobes falling.

An earth and sky are one
As silver fish swim in air,
Our ears are earth caves.
