8966667349_5ccd8e641a.jpgEarlier 

the world 
was round. 

Three dimensional. 

Searing light 
blazed
from the sky 
illuminating 
every facet 
every nook 
every crevice 
in stark relief.

Slowly though,
the world flattens as the sun goes down, 
(or is it really that 
we spin around 
leaving it behind? 
twirling away into space, 
leaving it to 
other surrounds?) 

Those rays 
in our surround, 
loose energy, 
unable to dissect, 
absorbed
and drawn away 
into the night. 

Crevices 
nooks 
crannies 
colours 
and 
shapes. 

all merge 

into 

(stark )


silhouettes.
