The All-Consuming

Wherever I step

It follows behind me

Swallowing towns

People and memories

.

Great shapes loom

Colors so splendid

Hubble into my dashboard mirror

But then it remembers

A sucking vortex

Each footstep of time

Distorts the reality

And gravity

.

Looking behind me

Nothing extends out

Like burning paper

Blocking everything

Into blankness

.

Ahead

Lurks the future

But with no weight of the past

To hold me down

Who am I

In this most popular

Of Earth realities
