the spinning room.

The spinning room
Is hard to get to
Because the door is never in the same place
As it was a second ago

The chandelier is just a shimmer
and there’s not much else for furniture
but a device
to keep the room from spinning away, away away

There is a man, the room keeper,
And if you ask him,
He never spins, but
Is the only thing in the room that stays the same.

    It’s a weird feeling, to be pinned to the wall while the room’s custodian faces you always, so that it feels like the room isn’t spinning.

    That would mean he’s spinning, but it doesn’t. It merely means he exists on a plane separate from the spinning room which allows him to intimidate, intrigue, and a bunch of other ‘i’ words the spinning room’s latest visitor.

    I have absolutely no idea what you just said.

    Strange addition, fittingly so for this absolutely bizarre house. Feels deep though I can’t say what it means necessarily.

    Delightfully confusing…

    Yeah. I’ll leave it at that. =)
