it's crazy   but i'm happy   the world

is upside down   

even sideways   but i'm where i want to be


with the one i love   our life

has become

a simple whirl of eat   sleep   work   love


and if i wonder what is missing

nothing come to mind   

the circumstances are a nightmare


i wish that part were over   over forever

but this   

our home   our affection   


this is what i've wanted all my life   i wish it all away   

all but this

Marianne Moore once praised an author by saying "his writing has fibre." This writing has sinew! It has good muscle tone.

I like the rhythm of line six, and the word-choice of "simple whirl."
