Expansion (Poem)

By Rachel Barnard

expansion​​ by Rachel Barnard




a word

worlds will fall

fallible unworldliness

would, if able to sense a fall

wishing for another world for all

will I be able to wish for falling stars

words about worlds falling willfully for sure

sensing an end of fate for worlds built from words
