Beyond Our Orbit
by Joanna M. Weston

if cosmologists
have knowledge of multiverses
and instruct me to go
to one far beyond my own
how can I find a road
which doesn’t exist

how can I travel distance
without map or guide
yet astronomers
calculate the miles
from star to planet
to exploding novas
but create no chart
nor highway through
starving black holes
