The poetic city: “The Flatness of Nothing”

“The Flatness of Nothing” 
Sometimes it overtakes me 
and nothing satisfies.
Everything is flat. 
Gravity doubles down. 
The air thickens. 
There is not enough space 
for ideas to grow and take off
with a life of their own.
I am stuck with self,
And the self bores…
Then I realize this experience 
might be universal, even cosmic.
It’s easy to think that the 
flatness of nothing is what 
sparked the Big Bang. 
Now there’s a thought!
