Inversion

Emily Mather

I thought of turning the world upside 

down today. Sketched Argentina 

and South Africa as peaks, stretching upward 

into a paper ocean. Turned a tree on its head, 

watched it shower the sky with fruits 

and leaves. Walked on my hands, felt rain 

beneath my palms. Opened 

the door to you and said 

Come in. You are welcome here.
