The world’s center, NaPoWriMo day 28

Poetic Asides – “the world without”; The Big Tent Poetry – what’s in the center:

The world without its center

Anyway, what’s in the center?
Is it a thing, a person, or a thought,
Otherwise incapable of getting

And should I try to find
a single one,
instead of blending all the world
around its missing center?

Around the edges of the absolute.

    Joke or not, that last line is powerful and true.

    I feel like you bent my mind around the center, much like sitting in a philosphy class. 😉 Good one!
