Shimmy shakes

Shimmy Shakes
Virginia Carraway Stark

It’s coming down
Chunks of turquoise hanging
From her necklace
hunks of raw sky
Who fell to the ground
She shimmies and she shakes
She knows how it goes down
Earthquakes
Goddess shakes
Clotted sky is crashing down
Her tasseled waist
Moves like an underground snake
She laughs at the fear
In the tumble down towns
