a million galaxies, a million voids.

i watched the sky change from orange to lavender

as the sun took its sweet time

sinking down towards the horizon.

if you look hard enough, you can see into another world

a million galaxies collapsed into one

and there is no end of the world.

every road leads to some new adventure

and our hands feel every surface,

taste every texture,

smell each flower

because we’ve never seen a place like this.

we’re doing our best to make it real

but any sane person knows

the moon will come up

darkness will cover up whatever little beauty is left to view

and the empty space inside will fill up with an even stronger kind of empty–a nothingness, a void

of what is ready to seek and destroy us.
