convinced the earth is flat

late october
trees shed
to bare what lies beyond

i itch to go through
that patch to the other side

to see if
i see myself
taking the walk in reverse.

what if, when i reach the end
to that other side,
all that is found
is a mirror –
keeping me from falling into the sky
forced to face
where i have been?

what if, i am destined
to walk the same paths
and make the same mistakes?

someone get me a sledgehammer to break this glass
.
