We are scarred and confused hummingbirds

stunned midflight

unsure how to hover any longer

shivering in suspended vibrancy

which cannot maintain in stillness

but contains a world it's own-

nothing maintains in stillness

we do not maintain in stillness

only it sometimes looks like still

sounds like quiet

but even then is the constant buzz white noise of constancy,

even the seeming stillness is the orbit and the gentlest quiver,

even the softest things drape over the hard thing beneath us all

which holds us up,

which keeps us from falling out of thin air.
