Strange/Sad Earth Facts

Earth is the only planet not named after a God
The ocean is mermaidless despite all those dreams and paintings
Each day some of us stare at glowing blue globes for hours
Night returns
The stove burns with touch, leaves its note on the skin
A woman bleeds for days yet no one knows, she smiles, carries wood
Inuits have hundreds of words for snow*
A turtle lives inside itself always like we do
The sky will turn purple
Glass made from heated sand, drops, breaks back into pieces:

              how we all fall, too, into our truest selves when we break
              as we are bound to

*I only have one.
