Everything But The World- Justin Million – April 4

Synapse Writer-in-Residence #NPM16

Everything But The World

For months after astronauts are blasted
back from the buttoned black, they drop

their glasses, their bibles, their shit-pinked babies

because they forget the air
doesn’t slow things down down
here like it does when you’re up in the tubes;

that this world is a way,
and the way between worlds is another.

To feel the cup
should still be there where you left it

in mid-air, a mess now on the floor that holds
a basement underneath, and underneath

that floor more
floor, must be

suffocating, must make them want that black
back, must be better living

somewhere
where there’s no way to drop

anything
but the world-
