Dist………………ance

Apologies for the crude rushedness of the drawing. As has happened before, I was running out of disposable time before reporting to Night Clerk duty. What I intended was, at top left, a closeup of a flying insect; then down through the diagonal a closeup of the top of a building; then a not-so-closeup of a couple of skyscrapers, looking town at them; then the Earth-Moon pair; then the Milky Way Galaxy from afar. I like the conception; I’m ashamed of the execution. But I think the double-acrostic poem is OK without adornment. Here are the words:

Defining space & time is not unpeeling a banana
Infinity is out of bounds beyond a mortal span
Sequential myths abound & all untrue as ABC
Though we all chase them ardently, horizons tend to flee
