there are empty spaces

in the recesses of my mind

where nothing grows

but I can see a forest

whose branches are like fireworks exploding into pinwheels

toward a hazy white sky

and the spent ash collects

at the base of the trees

as petrified embers like a blanket along the horizon

or a rip in space
