The Top . . .

~~ a quindecim
by tkbrown
Spinning! Spinning! Still, but Spinning!
The contents are naught but a blur . . . 
open windows appear opaque.
Seemingly still, but moving fast
on triangular pedestal
perched tall, straight above the tip.
Bulbous body -- visual blip --
spinning, spinning while standing tall.
How long can such sweet posture last?
Not one jiggle the spin doth make --
spinning, spinning -- faster, faster.
Then just a slight wobble is seen,
then one more if your eyes are keen --
then the top can be seen again.
