2022 Poetry Marathon, Hour Twelve

Hour twelve, from the image prompt:

Ultimately
it is the center
around which everything revolves

slowing
quickening
sometimes skipping or stuttering

but always relentless—
from start to finish

We may fall out of step
or go astray
but we always come back

Because the drum is everything
