they named you sisyphus
sissy for short
yet you were anything but
you colossus
pushing up mountains

you were reason that they existed in the first place

when you fell
you created the grand canyon

when you wept
you gave us the oceans

and when you laughed
the ground shook
but we weren’t afraid

danced to the tempo of the tremors
and gave thanks for the opportunity to celebrate our lives

unsure to call you god
or otherwise

unsure of your story
but it felt familiar
and that made us feel safe
laced with speculation
but trust
as we fell asleep

you blocked out the sun every time you blinked
but we didn’t noticed
