The Space Which Remains

So this is my next entry in my Medium Writers Challenge burst of creativity (yes, yes, I know — it’s about time). And, obviously, it’s based on the theme of “Space” (if you couldn’t already tell). However, as I was working on one short story after another, none of them gelled — they had no direction or focus. So I fell back and punted: I wrote a poem. Since I haven’t written poetry — not seriously anyway — since I was in my twenties (which is two decades ago!), I provide no guarantee for its quality or readability. Proceed at your own risk.
