ventricle blues

How far away is space?

To restate:
How much space is between
us and space?

To inquire more personally:
How much space is between
you and I?

To be slightly icky:
How much space is between
my fourth and fifth vertebrae?

Is it more space than yours?
Because you hunch sometimes.

***

Look at the stars with me tonight.
I know where there’s a secret supernova.

I know where there’s a blues record
in which Muddy Waters moans
about spaces in the heart.

You’ll hear it when we tune in
to the hidden supernova.

-this work will be appearing in a yet-to-be-named anthology.  Stay tuned.
