The Infinite Wheel, Hold That Taxi

by Jerry Ratch

Scientists have discovered what I already did once on dope

way back in the Sixties.

There are so many other earths out there

that they are almost infinite.

Now in our other lives we have to

shuttle from planet to planet

reading our poems. And our books

just keep getting bigger and bigger.

Heck of an existence.

We'll never get any peace.

Wait, can you hold that

intergalactic taxi, please?

So long! See you in another life.
