there is no elsewhere to which you can flee

escape is the expression of desire to avoid

danger or at least unpleasantness

but fear cannot be sustained for long

and no event is as drastic as that

(unless it be calamity's explosion

wiping out all conditions and leaving you

bereft and free to scramble forward)

if you live to tell the tale

then the place where you are seems new

and a fresh anecdote postulates a new condition

in the perpetual reality of our concerns

and an idea of elsewhere devolves onto the 'here and now'

where we submit to our visualizations...
