nothing getting past

Nothing Getting Past
by Kay Ryan

If life is a
thin film
sandwiched
between twin
immensities
of nothing,
you get the best
taste of this
out West in
the open country
where a keen
could mean the
double scrape
of nothing almost
touching nothing
–or the wind
coming through
dry grass. In
either case it’s
pretty close
to nothing
getting past.

 

as far as the eye can see
