Look Up at the NothingnessA Poem by Zoe Leah

And point in any direction.

Would you eventually run into something?
The only thing seperating your tiny finger
From the tremendous star 13 million lightyears away

To occupy half of what should be there
Hung in a multidimensional void
In unfathomable small particles with little spaces of

But not punctured or tampered with
Ifyou filled a jar with marbles

Are these just bottomless sensations we feel?
And I look up
But I see nothing.
