Absolute elsewhere

Slightly less than nothing
No seconds to spare
A deeper dark than blackness
Just absence and thin air

Slightly more than empty
Nothing left to share
Thoughts without the thinking
In the absolute elsewhere

Clocks tick
But time stands still
Fire cannot
Warm the chill
Shreds with nothing
Left to tear
Disperse into the thin, thin air
Of the place that is not there
in the absolute elsewhere*

* If event 2 is outside the two light cones of event 1, then event 2 is said to occur in the “absolute elsewhere” of event 1. In that case, neither event could have affected the other by a causal influence.
