Off the Edge of the World

in the world of

couldn’t possibly be

there are rules



they do not countenance

remnants and ghosts

faint echoes from another



it’s a sphere

don’t you know

people don’t just fall

off the edge of the world


the disappeared

and the vanished

are in the news

still haunting


the void, the space




and then one fine day

he too

fell off the edge of the world
