My wife, like many Utahns,
Pronounces it zero-scape.
I like the implication,
Turning lawns into nothing,
Cultivating absences,
Painting emptiness as is.
The null set's not so easy.

Let the desert bear forth zilch,
The mulch be rich with nada.
Let the rose fly with the worm,
Be gone in the howling storm.
Given the universe
Is expanding, what is it
Expanding into? Nothing.
