the sky here is much bigger than the land, a blue dome surrounds
you. strange linear clouds fill the sky - dissolving into trails. The sky
joins the earth at the horizon where the sun slowly dies among red clouds
and an orange haze. The night sky is filled with silence, nothing reflects
back the headlights, a horizontal vacuum, driving towards the vanishing point.

he was sitting in the library to escape the heat. his mind
could no longer focus, not even on the people magazine he found on his chair.
He was on the top floor of the reading room and looked out at the line of
airplanes coming into the airport, wondering where they all came from, and
why they would want to come here. he was determined to leave this place, but
his car was impounded after they discovered his aaa card expired two years
ago. atleast he's back in civilization among 7-11s, where he could get a coffee
anytime he felt like it. --phoenix, az
