I put my foot down and the earth
shatters like crazed porcelain.
I imagine the cracks stretching
down and down through the Earth,
through the top soil and the bedrock,
the crust, the mantle, the core.
I imagine them reversing their path
up and up through the Earth,
appearing in mirror image
half a world away from here,
where someone looks down
imagining a world that ends with me.
