Between Us a Universe

The sights, the sounds, the feelings of a place apart

Someone belongs here beneath this sky

and I’m out of place

a psyche with no mind to hold it

another story on an endless shelf

begun too early and finished too late

so close to the rest that our covers are almost touching

but between us a universe

stretches out to infinite horizons

and a pile of all those never written

waits for someone to come searching

lift them out of the funeral pyre

and fall headlong into cryptic realms

Anyone ever seen a UFO? I haven’t, but I’d like to.
