Off the Edge of the World

in the world of

couldn’t possibly be

there are rules

…inviolate

 

they do not countenance

remnants and ghosts

faint echoes from another

dimension

 

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

inexplicable

unacceptable

 

and then one fine day

he too

fell off the edge of the world
