Outback I

June 9, 2009

Out here in this
vast flat earth
you remember that the world is round –
but far from spherical,
you feel like you’re on
the head side of a giant coin
and that the end of the road ahead
might really be
the end of the road –
that, on reaching it,
you might slip right over the edge
and tumble out into
the vast arms of space
and the endless silence
of stars and eternity.
