Earthquake

There was an earthquake yesterday
measuring 4.6 on the richter scale
when it happened
I was two levels beneath the ground
deep within the womb
of a carpark at Ikea
as the car gently shook
back and forth, several times
I thought I had developed vertigo
or some other mysterious condition
while simultaneously
somewhere
there was a couple
making love
  soft kisses
    gentle caresses
     deep sighs
their love strong enough
to shake the earth to its core
