A Void

Nature abhors a vacuum so we

avoid thinking about the void all around us,

filling it with ‘planes, fireworks,

sodium to smear out the

great ovens above us,

monstrously far away, thank

God, for they would fry us or

X-ray us into negatives or

neutron-bomb us into

shadows on our walls or

suck us into their very own idea of

infinity, so we try to

reinforce our solar comfort zone with

coloured light like the

gauzy skirts that protected

Europa from Zeus’s

insistent pizzle.
