All these circles and wheels

turning us round

lifting us up and dragging us down

spinning us high in the atmosphere

pushing us low and raising us clear.

And this circle that begins my name

is the sign of infinity, a zero, a mouth

A compass that points both north and south.

This circle

is a snake devouring its tail

a wheel of fortune,

a ring,

the sun,

a knotless cord that cannot be undone.

May this circle stand around your heart

To keep you safe

In the light and the dark.
