for the first time terminus did not agree with its dictionary definition
but was boundless in a way i’ve dreamed of late.
undulating sheep fields with big oaks knocking around by the road.
a long-pictured stand-in for somewhere-on-sea meaning terminus.
purple wormhole terminus over kings cross saint pancreas. imagine that!
a crunching gravel turning circle terminus,
or that other terminus of things deemed worthless as spent hens.
