broken eggs

the horizon appears flat
but i know it curves
how many more things
do i see
that are just
illusions

the world is round
but every step
feels smooth
and straight
and flat

have we all just gotten our sea legs

do we cease to see the curvature

or does the curvature
avoid our line of sight

my mind
feels like a carton of broken eggs

we spin and spin
but never feel a thing
grown numb
to this disorientation

everything is gradually curved
yet
the bubble
in the level
is elliptical

it appears
i know less
than i previously
thought
