new from above/ground press: The Universe in an Earth-Shaped Urn, by Amish Trivedi

The Universe in an Earth-Shaped Urn
Amish Trivedi

There is a moon in the window and it’s burning even if we can’t see it. When it was overcast before, there was an indelicateness. What was meant has never mattered— what we call ourselves, how defined the boundaries of the self, matters more to everyone I am not. But do not generalize: maybe there is a me I have never seen because there is nothing anyways.
