NATALIE FENAROLI We used to think the world was fl at, no dips or crater s, like a land stretched to that endles s line crossing the horizo n. A desolate sky meets a dull ea rth, as the heavens’ finger drops from the blue v oid, pressing to the groun d to pop the pimples of the landsc ape. One barn gone , a car swept awa y. e s Th ky roils, its underbelly a writhing nest of nebulous sn akes. e e Th arth shivers to the bon e. Emptiness clings to the soul of th e sky. Famished by an earthly hun ger, the sky licks the pla net, clearing the field s. e s Th ky moans in hunger, whipping the grass in ang er, gnashing its teeth and howling to hig h hell, gorging itself on the mir e. A freight train they s ay. e s Th ound of the angry monster sk y hell bent o n desecrating the face of the e arth. But no. It is a beast with a w ill, and a yearnin g, to make that celestial sp here a fl t as a Kansas cornmeal panca ke. Only cold skeleton-handed t rees reach upward as if to beg i t for mercy.
