On an Infinitesimal Shift in Attraction

Updated: Jul 20, 2020

We met and you explained,

orange and ping pong ball in hand,

how moons will wax

and wane

and so effect the tides.

How, with a compass

we can find a fluid version

of our way

based on iron

in the planet’s core

which shifts

almost unseen

over the years.

How magnetism

can only go so far

to help us find our way.
