standing along the road as cars pass

headlights rise like moonlight
over the night

illuminating the trees
that shadow curve around each
wrong turn

the violet metallic tint of the car
marries the starless sky
the cityscape in the distance

the effortless
the dome of the world contracts

the vacant universe
a rush of gasoline fumes
the nothing earth

editors note:

Our effortless evisceration of earth isn’t nothing (yet). – mh clay
