Free Verse: Relativity


It occurred to me
that relativity
is stranger than
I’d thought,
I looked at
morning clouds
sunlit in the west
but the east was very dark
to you I’m in the east
to her I’m in the west
and for me you’re both
my right or left…
sometimes strange
thinking about directions
in a circular world
the strangest thing
of all
is I think
I’m in the center
where no center is at all.
