You may not realize it
but the world is slowly tilting.
It has done so many times before
and each time there is great noise and grasping.
You may have thought
you were born into a certain family
in a certain town
in a certain time
with a certain name
with a certain flow of memories
and collection of faces
and that all of these things flow together
into the clay jar of your body
and it's only this
that makes you who you are.
But the world is tilting
and when the cycle is complete
even you will meet the new you.
It isn't that the stories and songs from the Time-Before
won't be just as good once the world has completed its full-tilt
but new stories will be made in the Times-to-Come
and the really good ones will be about the people
who learned how to lean.
