  You could have a big dipper   

A Melancholy Cartoon Backdrop by Alex Albatross

The sparse trees

And cold, pastel blue sky

And the midcentury sci-fi rocks

Make one wonder what lies

Beyond the faux horizon.

A two-dimensional tableau

Intangible in any form beyond

The longing to know what’s out there

Beyond the Penciler’s intentions

Or the volition of the Pencil
