How many and how wide?

How many and how wide are the borders
In your mind? One? Two? Three hundred? A hair?
An inch? A foot? A mile? You’d best be sure, or soon
There will be nowhere to roam, and you will die
Alone, defending the sides you think you
Are on. And the vultures?

O, the vultures will grin at your bones!

Ah, thank you, Jan. And yet, despite how serious it is, I can’t help thinking that the play’s the thing.
