no curves, no turns, dead straight and plain flat

not a winding road, not a curly hair, not a crease

or any trace of activity

just plain and simple and flat-out

that’s it, that’s all

no design, no majestic or grand entrance

as quite as can be

simply flat and that’s that

unnoticeable, unlikely, forgettable

simple, stale, boring —– flat

nothing more, most likely less

but that is that
