the universe goes on and on then
stops to ask for directions
all ways relative
where am I?
here

time ticks and time tocks, the clock just stopped
there’s a buzzing sound in space
all ways relative
where am I?
there

spinning and spinning without knowing
where or why or when or how
all ways relative
where am I?
lost
