spirals

at first
the loops are gradual
joyous
as you cycle
the outer ring
as they get tighter
speed up
pulling you closer
towards the inside
until the spiral
is so advanced
it feels just like
a precipitous plummet
from safety
to uncontrolled chaos
ending
with a gurgle of water
to wash you
out to sea
another corpse
bobbing on the waves
to be used
as stepping stones
for those that have all
they could need
