Piddleville Described

absent geography,
and lacking history;
resistant to measures
of length and width
and other dimensional rules;
all the time in the world,
and none at all,
and both and neither
—clocks won’t do here;
the rim of a thought, unformed
or half-formed, or forming
(let us just say it is somewhere between);
a fancy that feels as if it’s a whim
or a notion or the caprice
of a runaway wish,
an aspiration to be
a car with a billow of sail
navigating the sky
unanchored, you fly
in Piddleville:
population unknown
