they call these stretches
as if they only last a brief spell,
and wrap themselves up tight
at a definitive end:
into a meaningful
really it’s just hell getting through
and you really don’t want any one watching.
but often you need some one watching
to help pull you out the other side.
believing that coordinates can lead you
to the center
of the universe
is saying you know the way to the edges,
to the end of the world.
there is no end; therefore, there is no center.
it’s just spinning and falling and flying and holding on for life.
