On Speaking Of Gravitation

       “I’m Nobody! Who are you?”

       Poem by Emily Dickinson

I’m not nobody, like Dickinson was.

I know that I have a name, by which

many friends call me, having also

ready a road I’m always wandering by.

So few friends had called on her and

she didn’t need roads to gain the world,

nor knew Amherst was naught,

gravitating around all of her.
